Children’s Services at The Kitchen, Inc.

In addition to her work as president of the Nadia Cavner Group, Nadia Cavner contributes to various charitable organizations, including The Kitchen Inc., where she serves as a board member.

Springfield, Missouri’s The Kitchen can trace its roots back to 1983 when Sister Lorraine of St. Agnes established a soup kitchen out of the St. Agnes Grade School cafeteria. Today, The Kitchen offers a number of services and programs beyond those of a typical soup kitchen.

In response to the recent trend of families with children finding themselves homeless, The Kitchen currently houses up to 100 children in its emergency shelter facility, the Missouri Hotel. In addition, the organization’s staff works diligently with various agencies to help meet the needs of homeless families. The Kitchen has also enhanced its own facilities, particularly its Family Nurturing Center, which now offers services for infants, toddlers, and school-age children.
