Wins for Kansas: Cricket Alley Ministries
A Wichita organization is on a mission to help women in crisis achieve their dreams.
"A lot of these ladies are at the lowest point in their lives. So whatever has happened to them, they've lost their confidence. They don't feel beautiful, and they feel very alone,” says the ministry’s founder, Larissa Freeman.
That's where Cricket Alley Ministries steps in.
"We are a ministry that's a fashion and beauty ministry. So, we partner with local organizations that help women in need."
Providing clothes, beauty supplies, beauty education and fashion styling to help women feel confident again.
"Whether it’s a displaced teenager or a woman coming out of a trafficking situation, of course domestic violence kind of covers all of this."
Now with a retail store on the west side of Wichita, they accept donations so that you can help as well.
"They just really need that confidence boost and to have a little bit of instruction to get some fashion tips, some beauty tips, it really makes a huge difference."
To help with their mission, KAKE TV and our partners DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers are honored to them as this week's, “Wins for Kansas.”
