Here at Flatland, we want to offer a gentle reminder that the holidays are a season of giving, not just receiving. So our gift to you is a daily list of sometimes-obscure local charitable organizations that could use your help. From Dec. 27 to Dec. 31, we are providing brief descriptions of deserving charities and information about how you can contribute.
The Kansas City Anti-Violence Project (KCAVP) strives to provide advocacy for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and hate crimes. The organization also educates the public on the LGBTQIA+ community. KCAVP focuses on community involvement to increase awareness and reduce violence while providing services to victims. Services include emergency assistance, housing, case management and incident documentation.
