Event description

Description

We invite you to be part of this exciting event that will honor women who've had significant impact in our communities, and empower incarcerated women for significant futures.

On Thursday, November 16, 2017, World Impact Topeka will present the Women Who've Changed the Heart of the City Luncheon. The event will honor women whose vision, compassion and service have made a difference in the lives of those impacted by poverty or incarceration in North, Central and Western Kansas. Your sponsorship will empower women who are incarcerated in our Kansas women's prison, the Topeka Correctional Facility, to change the heart of their cities.

In recognizing the following 2017 Women Who've Changed the Heart of the City Honorees, we will celebrate exemplary and inspirational service in rescue ministry, community, nutrition and educational initiatives, and missional work among the poor or incarcerated. Please join us in honoring these women:

  • Nell Ritchey, Topeka

  • Glenda DuBoise, Topeka

  • The Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica, Atchison

We also look forward to introducing you to World Impact's Incarceration to Incorporation initiative (I2I), and the four-year, seminary level leadership training program developed by World Impact's The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI), which will help equip incarcerated women for leadership. On a national level, TUMI classes in prisons have led to drastically reduced recidivism rates among those who participate. Locally, World Impact Topeka and TUMI Topeka have five years of experience with seminary-level training among those who have been incarcerated in Shawnee County Adult Detention Center.

There is great hope for the City! Please join us in this event to recognize women who inspire hope and to equip women who can become the hope of their own neighborhoods.

We will be truly grateful for your support and look forward to hosting you at the Women Who've Changed the Heart of the City Topeka Luncheon!
