What CHD Families does for

Kansas City Heart Families

The Congenital Heart Defects Families Association is a 503(c) not-for-profit dedicated to providing support to Kansas City heart families. We directly support our Kansas City heart families through support groups, family activities all year, care packages for inpatient families, and handmade blankets for inpatient heart kids, our Children's Mercy inpatient fund, and CHD Families Camp Systole. Indirectly, we support Kansas City heart families and kids by donating money to Children's Mercy hospital for research, providing gift baskets to CMH Cardiology for doctors'/nurses' day, and raising for the American Heart Association money through our large Heart Walk team for CHD research within the Midwest Affiliate. ​ We also have a very activity satelite group in the Wichita, Kansas area and provide support to families throughout Kansas and Missouri.

CHD Families is volunteer run. Often, businesses donate many of our office supplies and printing costs. Of course, there are other expenses to operate the association, but we maximize every dollar you donate operating with a minimum of overhead. If your business would like to donate services or products to CHD Families, please contact us at: 816 533 5989 or
