Everything Starts At Home…

Essential Families, a state of Missouri registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, provides crucial children and family development services, virtually, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from anywhere…like you order products and services from AMAZON, that are delivered to your front door!

The Essential Broadband Program is a Digital Divide solution, which means it also satisfies NTIA and NDIA Digital Equity, Inclusion, and Digital Economic Development goals and objectives.

Please, don’t take our word for it, ask the City of Kansas City Digital Equity office, our strategic partner, for broadband initiatives.

Essential Families stands apart by:


1. Filling a gap using mental healthcare to provide highly secure Virtual Mental Healthcare, similar to the Employee Assistance Plan (EAP) model mental wellness program, for individuals and families. No waiting list.


2. Providing Virtual Parental Education support to households just above the poverty line, a demographic that is too often left behind in government-funded programs. That cohort encompasses a population of nearly 300,000 people just in the Kansas City area alone.


3. Serving as a “Google” like portal for local essential family resources needed to stabilize and sustain families to be productive citizens in their communities.


4. Providing 24/7 virtual ACCESS to children and family needs, such as: Parental Education, Food, Clothing, Shelter, and Mental Healthcare, available on broadband internet in any city, or rural community. Free laptop, and computer training are included.
