The "broken windows theory" predicts that visible signs of crime create an environment that encourages further crimes to be committed.

We attempt to counteract this effect by encouraging members of our community to take a stand against crime and take back our neighborhoods.


Adopt-A-Street is a volunteer program in Kansas City, Missouri. Streets within the city limits are available for adoption by groups, families, and organizations that want to beautify and positively impact our community. Adoption periods are 2 years and each adopted street must be cleaned of litter a minimum of 3 times per year by the adopting organization.


Take pride in your neighborhood and community. Honor a loved one, volunteer with your organization, or simply help out the environment by doing your part. Request your street today before it’s gone!
