Boxed In


The Cowley House of Hope has been providing hotel nights for those in need in our county. To date, we have provided over 130 people with a place to stay the night and prevented them from having to sleep on the streets. It is imperative that we continue this work and we are currently working hard to establish a permanent shelter site in both Arkansas City and Winfield YOU can help!
