EMBRACE was conceived by a group of parents with a desire to ensure that all children with special needs are given the opportunity to receive a Catholic education.


Today, in collaboration with the Catholic School Office of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, EMBRACE has begun the process of offering grants and assistance to schools in the Archdiocese of Kansas. 


It is only through the dedication of our staff, volunteers and board, and contributions of people like you, that we are able to move forward with this incredible and important ministry.  If you are passionate about helping children with special needs receive a Catholic education in an inclusive environment, please donate, volunteer and help us make a difference for them.
