PROGRAM GOALS & FOCUS
KIC-IT believes that lives truly transform when we create a foundation based upon relationship and respect.
Recognizing the enormity of the challenges our society faces, KIC-IT is dedicated to making a lasting impact through our initiatives & programs for the youth in Johnson County.
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our clients are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in innovative approaches that empower our community. Through person-centered approach we help individuals set goals, make connections, and achieve sustainability
Clients have access to laundry facilities, can eat a warm meal, receive hygiene or pantry items, use computers, and spend time talking with staff and peers.
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
Change begins here.
KIC-IT wants to help youth build skills to achieve sustainable life change. We believe one step of that is education. We host monthly lunch & learns that are facilitated by staff or community members who are experts in their field.
You are welcome here.
Sometimes the cost of coming out means family rejection & facing homelessness. LGBTQ youth are at higher risk of homelessness, sexual exploitation, and violence. Yet there are currently no federal programs designed to meet the needs of gay and transgender homeless youth. KIC-IT is here to help every youth feel included, safe, and supported.
