As many of you know Starfish Project has partnered up with several homeless groups in the area, including Open Arms, 10/20 and Free Hot Soup (KC). We have began doing lunch and hair cuts for the homeless the 2nd Saturday of every month and soup/sandwiches 4-6pm every Monday at The Beach (134 S Clairborne Rd, Suite B, Olathe, KS 66062).

In our partnerships, we are doing everything we can to try and ensure folks are getting the necessities they need, in some cases it may be a hotel for the night, when the shelter is not open, but it is still below freezing outside. 10/20 the cold weather shelter is open when it is 20 degrees or below. We have started this page for folks to be able to see current ways that they can participate. Please keep checking back to see how you can help. If you are not able to volunteer with us, yet still wanting to help, we are taking monetary donations. They can be submitted by the PayPal button (PayPal fees apply). To ensure 100% of your donation goes to this cause, you can PayPal a friend at or send a check to Starfish Project, 134 S Clairborne Rd, Suite B, Olathe, KS 66062. In the memo section put “Jo Co Homeless”, that way we know where to allocate the funds. All fund collected from this page will go towards projects and items needed to assist the homeless in Jo Co.

This section updated 2/2/18. Again, keep checking back for additional sign ups and ways to donate.
