Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC)
1310 E. 10th
Kansas City, Missouri
This residential program assists up to 130 men, with treatable handicaps, drug dependence, alcohol addiction or other problems, at one time. Residents receive addiction counseling and are taught skills and given responsibilities that will help them return to community living. This self-supported program is funded by Salvation Army Thrift Stores, located around the Kansas City area. The ARC is responsible for the daily operations of these stores, providing pick-up service, sorting and refurbishing of goods and sometimes manning the counters. All funds generated by the stres are put directly back into the program.
Harbor Light Village Addiction Recovery Services

Kansas City, Kansas 66102
This facility, which opened in early 2008, offers a wide variety of services including social (non-medical) detoxification for both men and women, intermediate treatment featuring a structured live-in environment for alcohol/drug dependent men, and reintegration, a 24-hour residential living environment aimed at moving clients toward adjusting back into society. Additionally, transitional housing is offered to homeless veterans dealing with addiction issues. An out-patient program offers group therapy geared toward the education and understanding of substance abuse.
Every at-risk child has a common thread – each bear the scars of their own unfortunate circumstances. But with guidance and love, they can overcome the challenges they face in life.
Mitigating poverty, abuse, addiction and other family stressors does not happen overnight. Long-term, sustainable holistic solutions such as the Pathway of Hope program help break the cycles hindering the success of our communities and families.
