Our Story

At Synergy we envision a world without family violence, abuse or neglect.

Synergy Services, Inc. began in 1970 as Synergy House, the only shelter for runaway and homeless youth in western Missouri. Through the years, a series of both serendipitous and strategic mergers expanded the organization’s reach to include young children and women victimized by abuse.

Today, Synergy provides a full continuum of care to assist individuals and families with immediate respite from violence, and services which empower clients to find and choose good options for future safety and success. In addition to our work to treat the effects of violence, we provide supportive services to families in crisis in an effort to prevent violence. Additionally, we focus on community education and social change in an effort to build a safer and more humane society.

Our fully integrated programs include crisis hotlines, emergency shelter, transitional housing, therapeutic services, advocacy, mentoring and violence prevention programs throughout Greater Kansas City. 

Synergy’s clients represent a broad cross-section of the population spanning gender, age, race and six county lines in Kansas and MIssouri. Most often, clients have annual family incomes of less than $25,000, making it difficult to access the variety of services they need through traditional means. We provide these services, which are so critical to the well-being of the family and community, to anyone that needs them regardless of ability to pay.
