A Year of Changing Stories

Join us with a special year-end donation and help TWICE AS MANY families!

This year, hope has changed the story for over 500 people in our community. Your generosity matters. Thank you!

In our Sustainable Independence Program (SIP), we offer partnership, family, and people to belong with. This empowers families in a homeless circumstance to write a new story and move forward into housing and hope. Scroll down to read more!

In SIP phase I (urgent services), we shared our computer lab so that parents moving from out of state could apply for birth certificates. Both were needed to finish their job application requirements at a factory in town.

In SIP II (rotation/lodging in congregation buildings), one young mom of two is working on her resume and interviewing for jobs. She is EXCITED to talk about Family Promise and told us recently that the program has given her hope in the midst of chaos.

In SIP III (aftercare/mentoring), graduate families are participating in the Wichita Circles network and building budgeting, resume, and life skills. One middle school-aged graduate recently wrote a note to share with all our volunteers, staff, donors, and partners (above).

Today we are launching our 2017 Year-End Campaign.

Our goal is to begin a second rotation of congregations, so that together we can provide compassionate hospitality for twice as many children and families while they work towards a home of their own.

To expand our rotation program, we need additional staff time, Day House space, and supplies.

Our goal for this campaign is to raise $75,000 by December 31.

Help us jump-start this effort by making a donation TODAY!

We need your help to make this happen.

Would you make a special year-end donation to help double the number of families we can serve in our rotation program?

Your generous support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those
children and families who are still in need. Let’s empower them to change their stories!

Thank you for your continued support and friendship.

With gratitude,

Carrie Corliss
Founder & President, on behalf of the Board of Directors & Staff
