Beneficiaries

The Office of Respect Life Social Justice is very pleased to support the following ministries. Each ministry helps support those who are vulnerable.

Birthline
Birthline is a crisis pregnancy center, an alternative to abortion.  Birthline began in Wichita in 1971 and is staffed totally by volunteers and is open 6 days a week.

We believe every child conceived carries a very special message from God and that this message will never be repeated again.  Therefore, Birthline seeks to provide material assistance and non-judgmental emotional support required for every woman or girl to carry her child to term in good health and dignity and peace of mind.

Dear Neighbors Ministry
The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph became increasingly concerned for their neighbors as the Hilltop neighborhood declined. Founded in 2001, Dear Neighbor Ministries grew out of that concern. Through Sisters of St. Joseph Dear Neighbor Ministries, the sisters, staff and volunteers work to transform the lives of the poor, abused and neglected people in the Hilltop community.

Located in southeast Wichita, Hilltop is a densely concentrated neighborhood with a unique and interesting history. In 1927, two new aircraft companies were formed in Wichita, and by the fall of 1940, the aircraft plans were ramping up production associated with World War II. Hilltop was built to house aircraft defense workers who were migrating to Wichita to raise families and build their futures. Today, Hilltop continues to be the home of growing families, most of them struggling to make ends meet. Motivated by the God-given dignity of each person, we journey with people towards stability and self-sufficiency.

Birthmother Ministry
Birthmother Ministry affirms and supports the sacrificial love of birthmothers in their gift of life through adoption by offering hope and healing in Christ. This ministry seeks to offer, fellowship, counseling and a safe private place to share your Birthmother story. Lots of laughter and support are offered by other Birthmoms and by our trained staff.

They meet once a month on the 2nd Tuesday at the Spiritual Life Center at 6:30 p.m. Ongoing support through: groups, mentoring, counseling and a private Facebook page. There is also a weekend retreat offered at the Spiritual Life Center in Wichita.
