reStart offers the only emergency youth shelter in the urban core of Kansas City, Missouri. We provide you with a safe haven, a warm bed, and three meals a day for youths ages 12-17. While you stay at the youth emergency shelter, reStart takes on guardianship and provides you with 24/7 supervision and guidance.


We can be reached 24/7 by calling the youth hotline at (816) 309-9048.

Youth Street Outreach

We offer a Youth Street Outreach program, which provides outreach in both the Jackson and Johnson County area to youth (12-24 years old) experiencing homelessness. Outreach teams reach out if you are sleeping in encampments, vacant buildings, your car, under bridges, or if you are fleeing violence, and/or experiencing unstable housing to provide street-based case management services and referrals.

We are recognized as a S.A.F.E. Place site. If you are in need of immediate help and safety please call (816) 741-8700 OR text SAFE and your location to #44357. 

Please contact (913) 295-7067.
