Family Promise

What is Family Promise?

Family Promise helps homeless families with children achieve lasting independence. They help families accomplish this by providing shelter, meals and support services for homeless families and through programs designed to redress the underlying causes of homelessness. Congregations throughout Wichita host the families, one week at a time, 4 times a year and West Ridge is blessed to be apart of this, to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
