Community Service

We will be teaching a six week Financial Literacy course at Carpenter Place beginning Wednesday February 21st.  Classes will be once a week on Wednesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. and continue through March 28th

If you would like to participate, please contact Trisha Grosch at 316-253-9028.  Of course, would love to have you attend all of the 6 meetings, but if you can only attend one, that is fine!  

Carpenter Place is a faith-based children's home providing girls and families in crisis with support and skills to overcome challenging life situations.  They are located at 1501 N. Meridian Ave. here in Wichita.
