The Homeless Resource Center (HRC) is a comprehensive, daytime assistance center for homeless adults and families in Wichita/Sedgwick County.

The HRC provides a safe environment for individuals to shower, do their laundry, receive mail, eat a healthy meal, have a place to store personal belongings, meet with Open Door case managers, access our Klothes Kloset, and connect with services offered by Open Door and our partner agencies.

We offer space for clients, offices for partner agencies (see below), an education room, a family room, a chapel, and on-site medical and mental healthcare providers.

Open Door continues to seek community partners willing to leverage their services and expertise with ours to increase effectiveness. We provide a single access point for homeless persons, and provide services complimentary to our partner agencies.

Our current on-site, collaborative partnerships are:

  • COMCARE of Sedgwick County Homeless Services
  • Sedgwick County Shelter Care Plus
  • Veterans Administration
  • Kansas Legal Services
  • GraceMed Health Clinic
  • Hunter Health Clinic
  • Kansas Workforce Center (job assistance)
  • People’s Net (peer support)
  • Salvation Army (veteran family assistance)
  • Catholic Charities (veteran family assistance)

  • Wichita Public Library
  • Miracles Inc. (addiction counseling)
  • Various ministers (provide religious services)
  • Wichita Children’s Home
  • Kansas Department of Children and Families (Food Stamp/SNAP and Health Insurance assistance)

Open Door also has long-standing referral relationships with the Union Rescue Mission (bed shelter), HumanKind (formerly Inter-Faith Ministries) (housing), The Lord’s Diner, Center of Hope, and the Wichita Police Department’s Homeless Outreach Team.
