About Us

Lee's Summit CARES is a non-profit coalition dedicated to preventing youth substance use and violence, empowering positive parenting and promoting exemplary character.

Our vision is a healthy and safe community for children, youth and families of the Greater Lee's Summit area.

For over 30 years, Lee's Summit CARES has grown and developed into a thriving and important community based and grass roots organization. We are a nonprofit community coalition working to build a healthy and safe community for youth in Lee's Summit.

Our programming includes drug and alcohol prevention, bully prevention, suicide prevention, parenting classes and character development.

The coalition is comprised of representatives from healthcare organizations, law enforcement, area businesses, churches, and civic groups along with educators, students and parents. The group meets regularly to develop and implement community strategies to address this problem.
