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.
Our Family Support Centers continue to serve during this great time of need in our communities. Due to the coronavirus we are only open for business on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am-noon and from 1pm-3:30pm. We are seeking volunteer to help in various ways, including making food bags, stocking shelves and sorting groceries in the food pantry or assisting at the front desk by answering the phone, scheduling appointments and entering data. Training will be provided. we are asking all volunteers and staff to wear a mask at this time.
