Wichita Family Crisis Center is thrilled to announce the completion of our NEW HOPE Capital Campaign! The campaign raised more than 7.2 million to purchase and renovate a new facility, which will open later in 2023.

Domestic violence shatters lives. Last year, Wichita Family Crisis Center provided crucial services for 2,000 survivors in the Wichita area to help them put together the pieces. Domestic violence doesn’t have to be the end of someone’s story.

We provide comprehensive services for victims of domestic violence and sexual exploitation. Our aim is to create safe communities by targeting the issues affecting residents and working to prevent future occurrences. Survivors are never alone.

Wichita Family Crisis Center is thrilled to announce the completion of our NEW HOPE Capital Campaign! The campaign raised more than 7.2 million to purchase and renovate a new facility, which will open later this year. The new facility is five times the size of the old building and will provide triple the space for emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their children – effectively addressing the years-long regional crisis of insufficient space for victims.

The new building provides more than just shelter. The Crisis Center will be the vanguard for cutting-edge prevention programming and will make a generational impact on the domestic violence and human trafficking landscape in South Central Kansas.

Executive Director Amanda Meyers said, “Given that domestic violence and human trafficking are inextricably linked to the mental health and substance abuse crises, we expect to experience a positive impact on our community as a whole for many years to come thanks to this project,” Meyers noted. “This is one of the most significant and beneficial events to happen in the Wichita community in a decade. We should all celebrate.”
