The Wichita Children’s Home, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, is in need of an upgrade, officials say.

After being awarded a $1 million challenge grant from the Mabee Foundation, the organization is one step closer to accomplishing that goal, said Sarah Robinson, CEO of the home...

...Funds from the grant will go not only toward a new Children’s Home, but also a Multi-Purpose Center and Bridges Apartments – temporary housing for homeless and abandoned 16- to 22-year-olds.
