WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Wichita Falls Faith Mission is marking a milestone for one of its services that helps women and children.
This is the 10-year anniversary of the opening of Faith Refuge.
To celebrate the occasion, officials there hosted an event with speakers, music and a look back at the last 10 years.
“A lot of cities this size don’t have anything like this for women and they end up on the streets or ging to a larger city where the services are so scrunched up and taken already, and Wichita Falls has really made it possible for us to provide a situation like this that’s not really common in a town this size,” Wichita Falls Faith Mission CEO Steve Sparks said.
Sparks says Faith Refuge has helped over 10,000 women and children since opening its doors.
