The heart of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas has always been with the heart of those we serve. That’s why we are excited to announce that this summer our ministries located at 2220 Central Avenue in Kansas City, Kansas are moving to a building situated in downtown Kansas City, Kansas at 600 Minnesota Avenue.
—Catholic Charities is deeply invested in Wyandotte County. It is the place we first called home. We set up a formal office here over 60 years ago after recognizing the great need for assistance within the community.
—Our commitment of serving neighbors in need has grown considerably over the years. We have evolved from being a safety-net agency to one that strengthens individuals and families through skills training, financial education and employment.
—Due to the expansion of our services, we have spent the last few years analyzing and planning for a new office space. “We were elated when we came across this building located on a city bus route and in close proximity to many of our community partner agencies,” says Lauren Solidum, President and CEO. “The location allows Catholic Charities to be more visible and accessible to those who benefit most from our programs.”
THERE’S NO BETTER TIME TO GET INVOLVED
This new space is not just for those we serve and our staff, but also for our volunteers. Catholic Charities couldn’t do what we do without the dedicated volunteers who selflessly serve side by side with us. Our new location is conveniently positioned with ample parking and easy access from the highway and major thoroughfares. While our volunteers come from all over our service area, there is no better time for those in our Wyandotte county parishes to take this opportunity to serve in their local community.
