The Whole Person is “Planting Independence – One yard at a time.” This program provides assistance with general yard clean-up from 8:00 am to Noon on Saturday, June 4, to consumers who receive services, or are in any of our programs, that own or rent their homes. We will be doing low to moderate risk activities such as mowing, raking, weeding, and planting. (Excluded activities are lifting over 50 lbs, cutting down tree limbs or handling or removing any hazardous material.)

Yard maintenance can be a tough situation for people with disabilities. This activity with our volunteers helps TWP Consumers get a handle on their yards and avoid unnecessary fines from the city where they live. Location: A TWP consumer’s home in one of several pre-selected areas. Don’t be afraid of getting your hands dirty and doing a little physical labor. Each group will be asked to provide their own tools for the yard clean-ups. The consumer may have some tools to use. We will identify them when we do a site visit. TWP will provide a small welcome kit for each assignment which will include some first aid supplies, sunscreen, water and snacks. Thank you for being a part of this wonderful KINDNESS project to people with disabilities in our Kansas City community.
