Dear Neighbor Ministries
Dear Neighbor Ministries, an outreach of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph, was born in and for the Hilltop neighborhood of Wichita, Kansas.
As the city of Wichita has changed and grown over the years, the Hilltop area has transitioned from being a neighborhood booming with industrial workers and their families to a neighborhood afflicted with poverty and unemployment. Located in the same neighborhood, the Sisters of St. Joseph saw this transition with great concern, and as a response founded Dear Neighbor Ministries in 2001.
Using a combination of financial support, case management and individualized strategies, Dear Neighbor Ministries helps Hilltop individuals and families in crisis achieve greater stability and progress towards self-sufficiency. Through the combined efforts of a small team of staff members, the Sisters and volunteers, who provide over 6,000 hours of service annually,
Dear Neighbor Ministries has become an important part of the community. In addition to providing basic needs (emergency assistance, a food pantry, payee and tax assistance) Dear Neighbor Ministries fosters a healthy local culture taking part in holiday events for families, including those unique to the Hispanic population, conducting workshops that teach those with low resources how to manage their resources, as well as providing workshops that teach children how to care for their mind, body and spirit. The result is an improved sense of community among Hilltop residents.

The purpose of these organizations is to furnish more efficient and/or economical services to maximize educational opportunities for Kansas students.

Service centers are public entities, which operate in a highly entrepreneurial fashion. We blend the benevolence of the public sector with the spirit and ingenuity of the private sector.
The National Perspective - SCKESC is similar to other regional support systems throughout the country working to stretch limited dollars over demands for ever increasing services.
Our agency is part of a network of educational entities under the umbrella of the Kansas Association of educational Service Agencies (KAESA) and the Association of Educational Service Agencies (AESA) nationwide. The value of these innovative service agencies has been emphasized by their ability to pool resources for the common benefit of students and taxpayers.
