There are many volunteer opportunities for legal assistants and paralegals in our community. Below are some of the opportunities available.

Wichita Children's Home - BRIDGES Program

The BRIDGES Program provides transitional supervised living arrangements to homeless and runaway youth.  BRIDGES stands for Building Responsibility and Independence through Developing Goals and Empowerment Skills. 

KALA has committed to cooking dinner with these teenagers on the third Friday of each month.  Typically, a team of three KALA members plan a menu and send it to Wichita Children's Home (they do the shopping).  We cook and eat from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  It is a very worthwhile activity.  Hope you’ll join us!  If you would like to participate, please contact Shelly Bird, ACP.  

A hundred years from now it will not matter
what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in,
or the kind of car I drove...
but the world may be different
because I was important in the life of a child.
