After over 30 years of helping KC area children dealing with trauma, The Children’s Place has moved to a new larger home, and AREA is grateful for the opportunity to help them with this transition. They have moved from the corner of 59th & Brookside Boulevard just over a mile to 65th & Rockhill Road.
AREA’s assistance in the real estate transaction was as rewarding of an experience as we have ever had. Ann Thomas and her team tirelessly work to serve a community in need and for years they worked in an outdated facility that was too small. AREA agents, Adam Abrams & Mike Levitan helped the team to find a new, larger building. The main requirement was the need to be located on the bus line and closer to the kids that they serve. Nothing on the market at the time was going to work and fortunately we found something off market that checked all the boxes.
Not only do they now have enough room to serve the kids, but the staff now have the type of facility that makes their job just a bit easier. They also have a new 5-foot welcome teddy bear named Rudy, after a beloved retired teacher of 42 years, Rudy Liggins.
In addition to our business relationship with this wonderful organization, our company has been fortunate to partner with The Children’s place over the last 2 years on a philanthropic level. It has been such a rewarding experience to see first hand the impact being made by TCP and to play just a small part in helping these children in our community.
Congratulations to The Children’s Place and welcome home!
