St. Anthony Family Shelter

St. Anthony Family Shelter

St. Anthony Family Shelter is the only Wichita-area shelter designed specifically for families with minor children. Individuals and couples without children under the age of 18 are referred to other shelters in the area.

St. Anthony provides families with basic needs, assistance and support so they may gain stable housing, receive assistance with employment, and education on financial literacy, parenting and other life skills. The goal is for families to move out of shelter into housing which they can afford and sustain for a long period of time.
