We serve our neighbors, of all faiths, through Help, Hope, and Hospitality.
Founded in 1956, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is a ministry of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. Our purpose is to animate the Gospel of Jesus Christ by putting love into action through specialized programs and services for those in need. Staff and volunteers embrace the broadest definition of "who is our neighbor," serving not only the Catholic community but all faiths across 21 counties in Northeast Kansas.
I was scheduled to volunteer on 8/15/17, but due to Google Maps not being the most efficient, it took me to another nearby food pantry. I assumed that was it because it was so close! Regardless, they were willing to accept the extra hands (given that I didn't realize this until hours in). The volunteer coordinator was very helpful, and communicative. I will be rescheduling, but wish I could have done both in the same day. I do recommend simply because she was very friendly via email exchange, and setting it all up. I am sure it would have been fine, if I had the opportunity.
