HomeComing is less than a week away! Get your tickets NOW! Come party like royalty with us - all in the name of creating real change for so many individuals and families in Kansas City!
Since 1986, SAVE, Inc. has been building a sense of safety and community in Midtown Kansas City. SAVE, Inc. was formed as a specific response to the AIDS epidemic, offering SAVE Home, a safe space provided to those with the disease so they could die with dignity. As the understanding of HIV / AIDS grew, so did our services, expanding into housing assistance and transitional housing in the 1990s. In 2020, SAVE, Inc. adapted to the needs of the community once again by opening Pride Haven, where we provide emergency overnight housing assistance to transition-aged LGBTQ+ youth (ages 18-24) facing homelessness. We currently manage 8 different properties and have another about to break ground! Today, SAVE, Inc. provides vital services to over 2000 individuals and families per month in the form of emergency assistance, voucher programs, emergency shelter, and permanent supportive housing.
We are so honored to be a community lynchpin, helping to bring hope and dignity back to Kansas City’s most vulnerable population, who would otherwise have nowhere else to turn. At SAVE, Inc., we believe that housing is a basic human right and that housing is healthcare. We invite you to join us in our efforts to reach even more men, women, and children in need by supporting our upcoming fundraising event.
Will you help us continue to respond to the needs of the community?
Please join us at SAVE, Inc.’s 11th annual HomeComing event: The Queen’s Ball, on October 22, 2022, at Plexpod Westport Commons. As guests at this splendid soiree, you will be transported to 1800s London to take part in the most coveted ball of the season to sip on champagne, waltz your way into high society, compete for lavish prizes, and perhaps have the opportunity to take photos with the queen herself – all in the name of supporting SAVE, Inc.’s mission and helping us reach our fundraising goal of $150,000. We hope you will consider lending your presence, voice, and support to help us reach this goal! Your support will help SAVE, Inc. take the lead and speed up the fight against homelessness in our community, providing home, hope, and dignity for those battling the dual hardship of homelessness and disability. Come party like royalty with us - all in the name of creating real change for so many individuals and families in Kansas City!
