Projects that are close to my heart.
Caring for Military Families:Our Hidden Heroes
Our nation’s military caregivers need and deserve robust, effective support in light of the mental, physical, and financial challenges they face every day.
Veterans Community Project
Veterans Village – Kansas City
Through contributions and partnerships, we are creating Veterans Village — a community of transitional tiny-homes and onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying cause of the Veteran’s homelessness.
The Honor Flight Network
Honoring our Veterans
of Kansas City
Transporting our American Veterans from WWII, Korea & Vietnam to Washington, D.C. to visit the National Memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
I support the Missouri ABLE (Achieving a Better Life Experience) account program. ABLE accounts give people with special needs more independence and financial stability. ABLE accounts allow individuals with disabilities to save and invest money without losing eligibility for certain public benefit programs such as Medicaid and SSI.
The Kansas City Zoo plays such an important role in connecting children to the natural world. Still, not every child is able to fully experience every part of our Zoo. Kansas City Zoo and Variety KC have partnered to bring an all-inclusive exploration area to Kansas City, making this the first all-inclusive playground of its kind at any Zoo nationwide.
Big Sonia Day
Law Enforcement Memorial Garden
Constructing a Regional Law Enforcement Memorial Garden is an outgrowth of citizen input, and a burning desire to honor the memory of all law enforcement officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Federal, state and local officers and agents work closely together in the Kansas City Metropolitan area to keep our families safe.
To me, it made sense to have one memorial to honor the sacrifice and courage of those killed in the line of duty.
But we want to do even more.
We want to tell the stories behind the badge. Our fallen left behind wives, husbands, sons and daughters. Their families will never forget what their own personal heroes have given in the line of duty, and in service to their community.
We should not forget either.
As the wife of a police officer, I have a personal connection to the selfless job our law enforcement officers do. We have such a generous community in Kansas City, and I hope you partner with us on this endeavor to forever remember some of the most honorable men and women in our city.
