Donate Goods

In-Kind Donations

October 2021 update: Rose Brooks Center remains under COVID response procedures, which includes our protocol for accepting donations. To decrease risks to staff and those we serve, we unfortunately are not accepting clothing donations at this time. Please stay connected to us for further announcements, and thank you for continuing to stand with us.

Make a Monetary Gift

If you are able to support our mission with a monetary gift, please visit our DONATE page. This is the safest way to help us at this time.


An alternative – We have a great partnership with Goodwill of Greater Kansas City. They generously provide vouchers to those we serve – allowing our residents to shop in their stores. Because of this, if you’d like to donate in-kind items to Goodwill as an alternative, we respectfully offer this option.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our in-kind coordinator at:
