Donate Goods

In-Kind Donations

March 2021 update: Rose Brooks Center is currently in phase 3 of our 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 or other in-kind 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:
