Description of Organization:

Our Mission: Trust Women opens clinics that provide abortion care in underserved communities so that all women can make their own decisions about their health care.

Trust Women was founded in 2009. Since then we have opened up clinics in Wichita, Kansas; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Seattle, Washington. We envision a future where all women will be able to access to the  health care they need, including abortions, regardless of where they live or their ability to pay.

Before opening our Wichita clinic in the spring of 2013, Wichita was the largest city in the country without an abortion provider. We remain the only full-spectrum reproductive health care clinic in a 200 mile radius.

Our staff is committed to providing high-quality reproductive health care and protecting the legal right for all people to make reproductive decisions for themselves. Trust Women has earned its reputation as the premier organization with the experience and the know-how to navigate restrictive environments and oppressive policies to ensure more women with access to reproductive health care.

Location Description:

Wichita is located in South-Central Kansas with a population of 650,610. As a growing Midwest city, Wichita remains one of the most affordable cities in the country with a cost of living index lower than the national average at 91%. Single-family homes remain affordable with a median home value of $122,700 including a median rent price of $875 per month. It is also home to Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport which is currently offering twelve non-stop destinations including the East and West coast .

Wichita holds a wide variety of attractions and family friendly activities. Many of the businesses remain locally owned and overall investment/development in the downtown area has been robust in the past 5 years. You can enjoy walks along the beautiful Arkansas River, featuring the Keeper of the Plains by Kiowa-Comanche artist Blackbear Bosin, or enjoy a day out downtown  shopping from local vendors.

Wichita is also home to many annual festivals, such as the Tallgrass Film Festival in October, that runs for a week and houses over 200 feature and short films. Zoobilee, the annual celebration and fundraiser for the Sedgwick County Zoo is another highlight of the year, this charitable event is one of the largest in Wichita. The Wichita Riverfest is also a family friendly festival that runs for six days and is enjoyed by 410,000 festivalgoers across the state. Riverfest includes a wide range of activities,   anywhere from canoe rides along the Arkansas River to Helicopter rides. The three music stages at the festival feature local artists and big name headliners.
