More than 11,000 people in Leavenworth County struggle to get enough food to eat. At times, they’re forced to make difficult choices between feeding their families and paying their rent.

Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is here to help. Our Leavenworth Family Support Center is available to low-income individuals and families who need food or assistance with basic utility payments, housing, clothing or medical prescriptions. The help goes beyond meeting immediate needs. An on-site case manager works to identify solutions and resources that will lead to long-term change.

Volunteers are needed Monday-Thursday mornings and afternoons to make food bags, stock shelves, sort through produce and bread, or distribute food into vehicles. Volunteers are also needed to assist at the front desk, answering phones, checking guests in, and entering services into the database. We ask for a three-hour weekly commitment. Volunteer shifts are 9-12:30 or 12:30-4.

If interested, please contact the Catholic Charities Volunteer Department at CCNEKVolunteers@catholiccharitiesks.org.
