This year, Missouri companies have the unique opportunity to partner with First Call Family Services as we work to expand programming for families impacted by substance use disorder. When a qualified Missouri company donates to First Call Family Services, they will be eligible for a tax credit worth 50% of the donation which can be used on Missouri taxes.

First Call Family Services has been approved by the Missouri Department of Economic Development, from now until December 31, 2021, to participate in the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) Tax Credits. This credit is in addition to the usual federal and state charitable deductions.

For more information about this opportunity please contact Sarah Link Ferguson at or visit for information and eligibility requirements.

More about First Call:

“My husband and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. We so appreciate everything you have done for us. First Call was, indeed, our “first call” for help in dealing with our son’s addiction. From the moment you returned my inquiry call about the organization, I felt a sense of relief. I felt as if someone else would take over the driver’s seat for a while and help us as we navigated this path that we never wanted to be on. Your leadership and counsel have been so needed; so informative; so appropriate; so everything that we were seeking!” — How to Cope participant

We know that for every one person fighting substance use disorder, 10 others are impacted. That is why First Call’s Family Services programs help those facing a loved one’s substance use disorder in the Kansas City community. First Call educates families about addiction and empowers them to live their most healthy and productive lives. Our programs include How to Cope for adults; Caring for Kids for young children and teens; extended support sessions, and an alumni group. In 2018, the agency also launched How to Care, a two-part training meant for caretakers of children impacted by familial substance use disorder. All programs help to support those impacted by a loved one’s substance use and begin their own journey of recovery.
