Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is committed to helping our neighbors in need.
Providing Help, Hope and Hospitality when Disaster Strikes
We serve 21 counties in Northeast Kansas. Our relief and recovery efforts involve local issues such as the pandemic, natural disasters, economic crises, humanitarian issues and other events. We also serve our displaced brothers and sisters in need from across the world through our Refugee programs.
See below to view our active relief efforts. Our blog also contains updates on local disasters, including recommendations for supporting community partners and local agencies who step up when disasters affect our community.
To find out how to help with disasters outside of our service area please visit Catholic Charities USA and locate other regional Catholic Charities (such as Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St.Joseph on the Missouri side of the KC metro). Check out updates from our international parent affiliate, Caritas Internationalis. For US-based international efforts, please visit the official relief agency of the USCCB, Catholic Relief Services. Agencies such as United Way and American Red Cross also provide important relief services.
