About

Because life happens.... Sometimes you just need a hand up - maybe you lost a job, or there was a death in the family, or perhaps a large medical bill arrives. At different times, in our lifes we need help. Johnson County Human Services helps our neighbors in need by providing services such as utility assistance and food pantry. Our food pantries flucuate through the year, but we do see an increase in need during the holidays. You can help!
