Resource Bus

Committed to Serving People in Rural Areas of Northeast Kansas

The Resource Bus serves 15 counties in which we do not have a physical brick and mortar building. It is equipped with basic essentials including food and hygiene items. In addition, a case manager is available to provide rent and utility assistance, as well as community referrals. To find out if you are eligible for financial assistance, an appointment is required.
