The mission of Sheffield Place is to empower homeless mothers and their children to heal from their trauma and help them become self-sufficient. Sheffield Place opened its doors in February 1991 as a community response to the growing population of homeless mothers and their children in the Kansas City area. Since then, Sheffield Place has assisted more than 1000 families in making the difficult journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency. What makes Sheffield Place unique is the commitment to Trauma Informed Care and trauma recovery as the first step in healing; the intense focus on mental health and addiction recovery services delivered by licensed, master's level therapists; the exclusive focus on homeless mothers and children; the length of stay (averages 3 months); the delivery of all services onsite where the families live; and the provision of ongoing case management and other supportive services for as long as necessary once the families transition from the shelter to permanent housing in the community.
