In 1953 Kansas City Athenaeum joined other Missouri GFWC clubs in founding Missouri Girls Town, a residential facility caring for abused and neglected girls. We continue to contribute to its program in Kingdom City, MO, where girls can live and receive professional treatment to overcome their past traumas and achieve a fulfilling future.
