I am on the Advisory Council for the St. Anthony Family Shelter and the work that is done there is truly God's work and an inspiring way to help people get back on their feet.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping those who need just a hand to get back on their feet is something that fills a person with God's joy.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep up the good work!

One year ago my 3 year old son and I began serving meals at the St. Anthony's Family Shelter. We went two Tuesday's every month and assisted the kitchen cook. My son was 8 wks old when his father was in a tragic accident leaving us as a single parent family. We were blessed to be provided all of our needs over the next few years and I wanted to teach my son what it meant to give back. Our experience serving at the Shelter far exceeded what I ever imagined. We were a testimony to other single mom's there and gained so much personally by sharing the experience together as a mother and son. My son is 4 now and still recalls serving at the shelter. When I asked him the other day what serving meant to him, he responded, " I like serving at the shelter to help others." It's an experience to reach out to others in ways we may never fully realize the impact it will leave. Catholic Charities provides resources to families and individuals that need hope, love and grace.

I began serving on the advisory board for St Anthony Family Shelter, a Catholic Charities of Wichita supported organization, about 2 years ago. I have served on numerous civic and charitable organization boards over the years. I can honestly say that my experience with SAFS/CC has been the best of all. SAFS provides not only a temporary home for displaced families, it provides education and referrals to help families break out of the cycle of poverty and hopelessness. I feel very strongly that time, talent or money invested in SAFS/CC is an investment in helping families grow out of poverty.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing families break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness to become self sufficient.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More effectively promote its positive impact on the problem of family homelessness.
