While it sounds simple enough, sometimes keeping your children safe is easier said than done. Kids play. Kids climb. Kids run. And occasionally? Kids get hurt. Our goal is to help you - parents, grandparents, caregivers, and anyone else - make your home as safe and injury-free as possible.
This is where it all started - a simple, no-frills list highlighting home-safety improvements you can make yourself.
Charlie's Virtual House
Here, you can take an interactive, virtual 3D tour through our safety demonstration home.
Coming soon! Plans are underway to build a real-life safety house, complete with demonstrations, exhibits, and children's safety resources around every corner.
On November 1, 2007, Charlie Horn, a 2-year-old Kansas City boy, was killed when he attempted to climb a 30" dresser in his home. It was through this tragedy that Charlie's House was born. Learn more about Charlie's House »
Create a family keepsake with a personalized platter by Kansas City artist Laura Lenhert. Provide a photograph of the house you would like to feature, and Laura will take it from there. Oven, microwave and dishwasher safe.
