Johnson County Human Services needs and welcomes volunteers for programs, such as:
Food Pantries: Help Human Services staff meet the needs of low-income residents in one of three Multi-Service Centers, located in Gardner, Lenexa, and Mission. Volunteers can provide a hand in stocking the food pantry and also provide assistance with office administrative tasks.
Meals on Wheels: Deliver a nutritious, hot, noon-day meal with a smile to homebound senior adults. You can choose from eight nutrition center locations to find one close to home, work, or school. Deliveries are made from approximately 1045 am - noon. Volunteers deliver once a week as regular drivers, or when they are able as substitute drivers.
Catch-a-Ride : Through the Catch-A-Ride program, volunteers transport residents in their own vehicles to essential appointments in Johnson County. Volunteers set their own schedules.
Office Administration: Provide behind the scenes support at any Human Services office. Duties may include data entry, answering telephones, filing, preparing mailings, and other necessary office tasks.
