MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - The Sunflower Childrens Collective held its ribbon cutting today in Manhattan.

The ribbon cutting was for the newly-renovated space where all three agencies moved in together as they have been in different buildings for 20 years. The organization has been around for more than 35 years. Children Collective volunteers help children who have been in the court system for child in need of care cases with 3 different agencies that support child victims of abuse. In January 2022, they officially changed their name in order to get away from the community thinking they are only one agency, Sunflower CASA.

”We were in a space that nobody knew where we were. I think in previous generations this has been the kind of thing that people don’t want to talk about but I go into presentations all the time and say yeah what I’m going to tell you isn’t great news there are child victims of abuse in our community but we’re here to help them and it’s important you know where we are.” said Carson Kober, executive director of the Sunflower Childrens Collective.

The Sunflower Childrens Collective is located at 323 Poyntz Ave. in downtown Manhattan.
