While our mission remains the same, this marks a new chapter as we continue to build on our strengths and evolve the ways we serve those living in poverty and the homeless.

More than just a name change, we are aligning our name and communications with our progress—sharper, more focused yet still centered around the same founding idea: diverse people coming together to serve those most in need. We’re proud of our past, excited for this new chapter, and hopeful for the future as we celebrate our 135th year serving those most in need right here in Wichita.

COVID-19 Response

While many of us can and should practice “social distancing”, the work of HumanKind Ministries continues. Homeless individuals are at particular risk to contract COVID-19 so we are taking special efforts to keep them safe and sheltered. Though we have closed our office to the public and can no longer host volunteers on our campus, our emergency winter shelters and year-round shelter, The Inn, remain open for our clients. Learn about our efforts in response to the COVID-19 in the link below, and how you can help.

Sleep Out/Speak Out: POSTPONED

In light of the CDC’s warnings against gatherings of 50 or more people, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming Sleep Out/Speak Out fundraising event, originally scheduled for May 1, 2020. We hate to do this, as the event raises critical funds for HK, but your safety remains our top priority. We encourage you to still sign up and fundraise during this extra time to help continue operations and cover the extra costs associated with caring for our clients during this time.
