I had the opportunity to start at Newhouse as a volunteer not knowing that I would become a life-long supporter of this important mission. Newhouse is the oldest shelter in the metro and is playing such a critical role in alleviating domestic violence in Kansas City. I was lucky enough to join the Newhouse staff and help continue this mission!

Being a survivor of domestic violence as a child, I deeply appreciate the staff and volunteers at Newhouse. They are over worked and under paid in their commitment to save the lives of the women and cildren trying to Break The Cycle of Domestic Violence! They have made the commitment for over forty years.

As an educator, I am so impressed with Newhouse's onsite school. The children come to the shelter fearful and usually behind in their studies. The special education instructor uses differentiated instruction with each child to assist them in gaining confidence and academic/life skills to be ready to re-enter public schools with a healthy mind--ready to learn more.
