Congratulations to the Wichita Children’s Home on its 125th anniversary, which was Friday. The home started as an orphanage in 1888 and is now a crisis shelter that serves about 5,000 children and young people every year. Karen Countryman-Roswurm, a former resident of the home who now directs the Center for Combating Human Trafficking at Wichita State University, spoke of the dedication and commitment of the staff: “They don’t care how little money they might have. They don’t care how hard the work can be. They help those children day after day after day.” Wichita and tens of thousands of children have been blessed by work the home has done all these years.
