As a part of ongoing commitment to making and keeping the Greater Wichita area as one of the best area's in the country for strong spirit, mind, and body - for all in the community - we work with 60+ partner organizations (governments, non-profits, advocacy groups, service providers, corporations, and more) to ensure ready access to programs and services for those in need - especially at risk populations including kids and older adults.
ALL partnerships must align with and further our mission - to put Christian principles into practice through programs that promote healthy lifestyles, strong families, and positive youth development to build healthy spirit, mind and body for all, regardless of ability to pay.
