The Treehouse: Wichita, Kansas
It is because of gifts and grants that The Treehouse is able to keep ministering to women who have chosen to carry their babies to term and give birth under difficult circumstances.
One of these mothers is Ashley. She has a 3-year-old son, a 1-year-old daughter, a 9-year-old stepson and is expecting a new daughter any day now. For the past three years, she’s been going to Treehouse. The first time she went looking for support as a new mother and to get back in touch with God. “When I look back,” she said, “I remember how I felt the first time I walked in and was greeted by smiling faces. I immediately got the sense that I was in the right place. It didn’t take long before I considered the Treehouse to be a refuge. I could go there and unload all of my problems, worries and fears. I was always met with smiles, laughter and love. I found the positive role models I needed as well as new friends with children and similar lives. The Treehouse also helped me through some of the hardest financial times.”
Other women, like Ashley, are being helped every day at Treehouse as they continue to support the courageous, life-affirming decisions of new mothers and the needs of their babies by:
• Giving eligible mothers a one-time free distribution of basic infant necessities
• Providing a thrift store for birth to 4T clothing, basic supplies for infants and toddlers, maternity clothes and more
• Offering educational classes
• Donating extra assistance five-times a year with diapers or formula
The Treehouse proudly serves the women of Wichita Kansas and the surrounding area. To learn more visit http://www.focusnorthamerica.org/partner-ministries
