Project: Construct Safety Demonstration Home
Grant Amount: $50,000
Total Project Cost: $1 Million
In 2016, The Sunderland Foundation pledged $50,000 to support the construction of America’s first Demonstration Home specifically for child safety.
Charlie’s House is located in Kansas City, Missouri and has been in operation since 2007. In late November 2007 a 2 year old Kansas City boy was killed when he attempted to climb a dresser in his home. What started as a memorial and outpouring of public support has grown into an organization dedicated to keeping the community informed and engaged when it comes to preventing injuries to children in and around the home.
