Where are Open Houses located?
The Baby Grace program in Kansas City is located at Trinity United Methodist Church, 620 E Armour Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64109.
What does this location provide?
Diapers & Wipes – Baby Grace Kansas City distributes a free bundle of disposable diapers the 2nd Saturday of each month or the following Thursday to each qualifying child under 4 years of age.
Clothes/Books/Toys/More – We manage a distribution center where we accept donations of used mother/child items for children from birth to age five. Those donated items are made available to Baby Grace families for free at quarterly Clothes Closets. Because all items are donated, we can never guarantee availability of any item. Items commonly found in the distribution center include clothes, books, toys, blankets. You may also find high chairs, strollers, bouncy seats, pack-n-plays, swings, and other similar items. It is not necessary to receive diapers to use the Clothes Closet.
Referrals for Social Services & Parenting Tips
Baby Grace Camp – Held every summer, this church camp is designed specifically for Baby Grace families (moms and their children ages 4 and under, dads and their children age 5 and up, and families consisting of two adults with children of all ages). Spots are limited, so applications are accepted in the spring and moms are selected based on their application and space availability.
Baby Grace Prayers – we offer a spiritual outreach of prayers and support upon request.
Do I need to register for this location's Baby Grace?
You can register once you arrive for a Clothes Closet event or Diaper Distribution Day.
Are there qualifications I need to meet or paperwork I need to bring to participate?
The following 3 things are required to receive diapers from Baby Grace Kansas City:
1)ID for yourself
2)ID for your child that contains their name and date of birth (for example Medicaid card, shot record, passport, birth certificate)
3)One item for proof of financial eligibility (for example, a paystub or other proof of income, Medicaid card, SNAP/EBT card, WIC Folder, state benefit papers, homelessness letter.)
Emergency distribution will always be considered on a short-term basis of 3 months.
Please be sure to bring all of these to our January Diaper Distribution when we do our yearly re-enrollment.
When is this location open?
We are open on the second Saturday of each month from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM for diaper distribution, as well as the following Thursday from 6:30 – 7:30 PM. In March, June, September and December, we open our clothes closet where families are able to receive clothing and baby and toddler care items, free of charge. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates on Open House Clothing Closets. Baby Grace KC
I can’t come to a scheduled event event; can I come get clothes/diapers another time?
