Keeler Women’s Center

Thank you for your interest in Keeler Women’s Center. We are grateful for the opportunity to tell you more about our ministry.

At Keeler Women’s Center, our mission is to empower women in the urban core through education, advocacy, personal and spiritual development. The sisters of Mount St. Scholastica came to Kansas more than 150 years ago to teach young women. Our work at Keeler Women’s Center continues that mission, though in a different format. In addition to our small staff of sisters, more than 100 volunteers donate time each month to make a difference in the lives of women.

Through our programs and services, we see firsthand how women become instruments for change in their families and neighborhoods. When we help a woman learn to read or speak English, manage her health or finances, or start a business, we see her create ripples of hope and change that lift up her children and her community.

We appreciate your interest in our work and invite you to become involved.
