Wins for Kansas: Churches needed to help homeless

Posted: Updated:

The Wichita public school district helped about 2,000 kids last year who are homeless and there are not nearly enough beds for all of those students at local shelters.

Wichita churches are banding together to help homeless families, but are in need of more congregations to join their effort.

Family Promise of Greater Wichita now has commitments from eight churches that will provide families in need a place to sleep and meals for one week.

"We are like a lot of other churches around town, we have a lot of space," says Pastor Cliff Loesch of Friends University Church.

The non-profit needs 13 churches to provide year-round help for homeless families.  Family Promise is also in need of support congregations and a 15 passenger van.
