“WLH is the best organization I know. They have helped our family in so many ways as my son fights. Just being an amazing support system to even financial help, this organization has really blessed our family.” –Courtney R.2

Music Theatre of Wichita5-stars

“MTWichita presents performances of the highest quality, year after year. Wayne Bryan, the director, has an uncanny ability to attract superb talent and then shape that talent into a superb performer. By example, MTWichita has elevated the quality of other musical ventures in this community.” –happycamper2

Assistance League of Wichita5-stars

The Assistance League of Wichita is a wonderful example of what people who are willing to give of their time and talents can accomplish. Approximately 3,500 individuals (most of whom are children) are supported annually by ALW volunteers. Thousands of volunteer hours are logged as ALW members work to raise funds to support Wichita Public Schools children in need and individuals within the Wichita community who are survivors of violence. It is an organization of volunteers that I am proud to be a part of.” –sdwilson259

Fundamental Learning Center5-stars

“I was trained as a reading therapist by the founder of Fundamental Learning Center. I used that training to work with language learning different students (mainly dyslexic) for 17 years. The thrill of seeing a non-reader become a reader by using the Orton-Gillingham-based program that FLC offers is immeasurable. The founder and director of FLC is a truly dedicated and tireless advocate for children struggling to read, write, and spell. Fundamental Learning Center is definitely an oasis in a desert of misguided reading instruction techniques.” –PBRthecat

Alternative Gifts International5-stars

I was quick to suggest them when moving to my current community as they are always so professional, easy to work with, and provide a large range of opportunities for coordination. We run a small church-based event and the materials that they provide make it an amazingly easy event to coordinate. Materials also allow for easy tie-in to Sunday School Classes and other mission efforts, and make the coordinator’s job amazingly easy. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.” –Beth Van Why

Arts Partners5-stars

“I have volunteered for Arts Partners and it was a great experience. They have helped so many
people and shared with the community the value of art. It is a great organization that touches many.” –Kellykk00
