IHOPKC ELT Update 11/10/2023

November 10, 2023 8:30pm

Dear IHOPKC family,

We have an important update.

Third parties that claim to represent alleged victims have communicated a lack of trust in the national law firm IHOPKC engaged to lead the inquiry.

After careful consideration, our leadership team has decided not to proceed with STINSON LLP and instead has retained a local KC law firm to conduct interviews with alleged victims. That local firm has already begun outreach to the few alleged victims whose identities are known, as well as the individuals claiming to represent anonymous Jane Does.

IHOPKC is committed to investigating any allegations of abuse in our organization in a way that honors privacy, safety, and due process. It is our sincere desire to serve and assist every alleged victim in order to see truth and light come forth during this sensitive and challenging time.
