Celebrating New Foster Parents!

Scott and Tiffany Welhoff just completed their foster parenting classes. Scott grew up in foster care, and was adopted by his foster parents. He and Tiffany want to provide a safe place for children who cannot be at home for whatever reason. They are excited to be caring for children as foster parents themselves. Let’s welcome them to the foster care family!

The Healing Power of Plants

Kansas City Community Gardens is a great partner that seeks to empower and inspire low-income households, community groups and schools in the Kansas City metropolitan area to grow their own vegetables and fruit. They’ve been a huge help to our Healthy Living program, and recently took visit to our campus farms.
