Welcome to Kansas City, Missouri! The collaborative and philanthropic nature of Kansas City and its dedication to building a trauma-informed and resilient community made Kansas City a natural place to pilot Sesame Street in Communities (SSIC). Together with The Children’s Place, Crittenton Children’s Center, Kansas City Public Television (KCPT), and The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, the SSIC model is being integrated into key programs to further assist families in need through awareness activities and provider workshops. Support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Joan Ganz Cooney Fund for Vulnerable Children helped us bring SSIC to this community.
