AAHN’S PLACE is committed to providing the best possible care and compassion to the children and families that we serve. While we know it is the children that stay here, we are aware they have families who are concerned for their safety as well. We are cognizant of the emotional difficulty and instability that this causes the youth that we serve. Being placed in a different home for help can be stressful and emotionally draining. We understand what moving a child from place to place can do to children and we are here to help them through that process 100 percent of the way.We also help them work through any other issues they may have from experiencing these trying times. We pride ourselves on giving our full support to the young minds that we help and we strive to get them back on their feet and feeling confident as quickly as possible. We are devoted to building pride and restoring hope to every child that we work with.
We are 1 of 14 emergency shelters across the state of Kansas and we are the second largest. We are one of the very few group homes for children in Kansas that provides emergency shelter services. We accept children from all different backgrounds who are dealing with many different struggles , all of which can be worked through to create a better life for these children. Many of them have simply had a rough start in life.
Aahn’s Place is a temporary shelter for children ages 6-18 that are brought in by law enforcement due to being homeless, abused, neglected, abandoned, or are runaways. They stay here for 72 hours (excluding holidays and weekends) while their case and/or any allegations are being investigated by the state of Kansas Department of Children and Families.
