What is Adult Day Services?
Adult Day Services has been an important part of the Wichita community since 1975, and will continue to offer families seeking day services for seniors or adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities a safe, loving and enriching environment long into the future.
Time for Growth
With an eye to future growth to meet demand and a desire to improve service today, Catholic Charities is conducting a major fundraising effort, the Blessing Families, Enriching Lives Capital Campaign.
Proceeds from the campaign will help us transform the former Michener Elementary School into a beautiful and highly functional building where our program participants will enjoy large communal areas for dining and group activities, spacious ADA-compliant restrooms and changing areas, and a large outdoor recreational area.
How will we do it?
Generous lead donors and foundations have the campaign well on its way to meeting our $5.2 million goal.
One of those foundations is the Tulsa-based J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation which pledged $750,000 as a matching challenge. Our community rose to the challenge and our campaign received the full Mabee grant amount. In addition, one generous individual donor has pledged $850,000 as a capstone gift to push us over the top when we get close to our goal.
Our efforts with both ADS and the Blessing Families, Enriching Lives capital campaign are led by a teaching of the Catholic Church which we believe is valued by all faiths and denominations: “The family should live in such a way that its members learn to care and take responsibility for the young, the old, the sick, the handicap, and the poor.”
