Breaking Bread – Winter 2012 – Lawrence: A Year of Serving the Community

Catholic Charities has long had a presence in the Lawrence community but just recently celebrated one year of human services work from its new office in St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church.
From October 2010 to October 2011, Catholic Charities provided services to about 850 people in Lawrence. Catholic Charities staff has provided emergency assistance services, immigration
legal support, counseling, community outreach, Marriage for Keeps and more.

Nickie Daneke, Director of Emergency Services in Lawrence, has also reached as far as Reading, Kan., to help support the town and its residents who need assistance following the May 2011 tornado.

“Catholic Charities is proud to be an integral part of the strong community that is Lawrence,” Daneke said. “We are glad to be collaborating with great local nonprofits and Lawrence residents to support the community further.”

Catholic Charities is grateful for the support of the Lawrence community. Michael Easterday, of Lawrence, has joined the Catholic Charities Foundation Board of Trustees. Fr. John Schmeidler, of Lawrence, has joined the Catholic Charities Board of Directors. Both boards consist of community leaders who share their expertise to establish the vision to support Catholic Charities’ mission.
