Thank you for supporting KCTI

Thank you for your ongoing partnership and commitment to creating a more diverse and culturally responsive mental health workforce and community.


Our work is only possible with the generous support of people like you who believe in the necessity of students and clients to have access to providers and trainers who share similar ethnic, cultural and racial backgrounds with them.  A cultural or racial connection is often one very important piece of the right ingredients needed for some people to feel comfortable enough to take the risk to seek mental health services.  There is a shortage of therapists of color and our mission is to help nurture, train and support the development of the next generation of providers of color.  Everyone deserves the right to have the option to see a mental health provider or social service provider who looks like them, and who they connect with.


Your gift offers community members of all ethnic, cultural and racial backgrounds to receive therapeutic assistance they need whether in the therapy room or a classroom.


Please consider making your gift a monthly donation.
