Synergy Services will celebrate the opening of its new Children’s Center at 2501 N.E. 46th St., Kansas City, North, on Thursday.
The 10,000-square-foot Children’s Center will double Synergy’s capacity to serve children of all ages by providing space for advocacy services, mentoring, educational services and tutoring, and play therapies. At least 16 children will be housed at the center at any given time.
“We are thrilled that we now have a space dedicated to the children we serve,” said Corky McCaffrey of Synergy.
The open house is from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and the public is invited to attend, tour the building and grounds. A ribbon-cutting is planned at 5:15 p.m. Kid-friendly food will include hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
“We’re excited and the neighborhood seems to be excited, too,” McCaffrey said.
Parking for the open house is available at Antioch Community Church, at 4805 N.E. Antioch Road, Kansas City, North. A shuttle will transport visitors to the Children’s Center.
