Change the Future

We're elevating our voices to elevate our community! From racial equity to reproductive justice, we're joining together to make sure we leave our kids a better future than the one we inherited. Be part of the movement for a better, more equitable Kansas!

Baby Essentials

We collect donations of diapers, clothes, formula, and other parent/baby essentials through our mutual aid network. As a member, you can tap into our collection for free. Members never have to fill out paperwork or jump through hoops to get items.


You take care of everyone else, now it's YOUR turn. Join us for special self-care activities like DIY facials, or make an appointment for our luxurious Self-Care room. We're taking charge of our wellness and living our best lives in 2024. Join us!
