Committed to Serving People in Rural Areas of Northeast Kansas

Direct assistance is provided to those living in rural, outlying areas through our two Mobile Resource buses. Each bus is equipped with basic essentials including food and clothing. In addition, a case manager is on board to provide rent, utility and medication assistance, as well as community referrals.

Catholic Charities is committed to serving those who live in rural areas where emergency assistance may not be easily accessible. We have two Mobile Resource buses which serve northeast Kansas.
