Santa’s Sleigh – Adopt a child for Christmas Program 2017

It’s that time of year again! Every year KCM partners with donors in the community to provide Christmas gifts for children and senior adults in need in our community. The child/senior will fill out a wish list of about 5 items that includes their favorite colors, sports, clothing sizes, etc., and the donor will shop for those items, bring them to KCM, where they will be distributed to the family of the adopted child or to your adopted senior adult. Parents are already registering and now it’s time to register donors, and match them with the children! If you, your family, your small group, office co-workers, or social group would like to adopt a child, a family of children, or even a few families let us know!

  1. Click the “Adopt” button below
  2. Fill out the form completely, letting us know if prefer child(ren) or a senior adult, and how many. (You can always start with one or two and adopt more later if you decide to!)
  3. Wait to hear from a KCM staff/volunteer with specifics about your adoptee’s wish list.
  4. Shop for items on the wish list.
  5. Drop items off at KCM at designated time/location! (You can request a donation receipt for tax purposes).

Silent Witness: A Night to Remember 2017

KCM is honored to announce the 2017 Silent Witness Event. This is truly a special evening to remember the lives of those lost to Domestic Violence in Texas and to learn more about how to be a part of the healing process for survivors. This year the event will be held at Westland Baptist Church, 1407 West Grand Parkway South, Katy, TX 77494.

We invite you to attend this special evening, free and open to the community, as we comemorate the lives of those lost to Domestic Violence in Texas last year. Dinner will be provided to attendees and the evening will also feature a commemorative rose ceremony.

The Silent Witness project/community event consists of a traveling exhibit of life-sized, free-standing, red, wooden silhouettes. The silhouettes represent a woman, man or child who was murdered by their intimate partner or by a family member. The mission of this project is to remind us of the impact domestic homicides and family violence has within our community. Because these victims no longer have a voice, the silhouettes are called the Silent Witnesses.

Our Key Note Speaker is Sandra Lopez, LCSW, ACSW, DCSW.  Her research centers around Trauma in Adults, Children and Adolescents, Grief & Loss, Professional Self-Care, Cultural Competency, Clinical Supervision, and Ethical Issues.

Thank you for your part in helping promote peace and safety in our community. We hope to see you at this event.
