Since 1982 the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank has been serving the community as a 501(c)(3) organization focused on feeding hungry people. We procure food that is distributed free of charge to the clients of charitable partner agencies and programs operating in 12 North Texas counties.
In 1965, The Church of The Good Shepherd at 10th and Burnett streets provided a building behind its place of worship for seniors of the Wichita Falls community to gather. Due to the difficulty of locating the facility, organizers painted the entry door to the building red and gave easily identifiable directions, “go down the alley and look for the red door.”
Beacon Lighthouse Inc. produces a wide array of pads for all of your cleaning requirements, from the largest to the smallest jobs. We have pads for any size floor polishing machines. We have quality 3M pads that can be rinsed and reused to help you cut costs while getting the highest quality pad on the market.
Bearing in mind the best interest of each individual child, the mission of Patsy’s House Children’s Advocacy Center, Inc. (Patsy’s House) is to reduce trauma to child abuse victims and their non-offending family members, and to work toward improving the justice system’s response to child abuse by uniting the efforts of public agencies and enlisting community support.
The Kell House is one of the most historically and architecturally significant buildings in Wichita Falls. The Museum features distinctive architecture designed by the local firm of Jones and Orlopp, original family furnishings, textiles, decorative arts, and historic costumes. Guided tours of this local, state, and national landmark provide a fascinating history of this area’s early settlement and of the Kell family.
