How we help

Variety KC believes all kids should Be Active, Be Social and Belong. We remove mobility and communication barriers by providing the necessary equipment and devices, and provide inclusive opportunities for all children right here in our community.

Mobility

Be Active

Through our Mobility Grants, Variety awards gifts like van lifts, wheelchairs, adaptive bicycles and prosthetic limbs to special needs children in need.. The gift of mobility is life changing for children and families right here in Kansas City. Learn more about our passion for mobility. 

Assistive Tech

Be Social

Communication significantly impacts a child’s development of social skills and relationships. Some children with special needs benefit from a communication system or device. Variety KC provides the technology and devices that reduce frustration and allow children to initiate and respond, to make choices, and most importantly – to interact socially.  Help give kids a voice!

Inclusion

Belong

To help children with physical and cognitive disabilities, as well as their families, feel included in our community, we support community projects such as inclusive ball fields, playgrounds, and sports programs. Variety also plans and hosts free events – such as Hooray for the Holidays, pumpkin patch outings and professional sporting activities. Join us at one of our upcoming events!
