Kansas City Autism Training Center (KcATC)
"My favorite thing about school is the change activity," smiled Ben, a six-year-old, sitting in a newly furnished classroom while working with therapy putty. "It makes you strong with your hands!"

Royals Charities made it possible for KcATC to furnish 8 classrooms with carpeting, classroom reading tents, and classroom supplies. In 2017, 38 children were impacted by the Royals Charities grant.

Drumm Farm Center for Children
When children from Drumm Farm were invited to the Royals Charities Holiday Party, we learned how a child in foster care might not have the same experiences that other children have regularly. A young child told us, "I drank hot chocolate out of a REAL coffee cup!"
Today, Drumm Farm is home to nearly 50 children and provides services to more than 200 while operating a counseling center, animal and produce farm, and the Drumm Farmer's Market. Royals Charities is proud to support the children and the mission of Drumm Farm.
