At the 46th Annual Snow Ball, we highlighted our founding ministry program, Adoption. We are grateful to adoptive couple John and Kami for allowing us to share their beautiful story and to show what can happen when we put our trust in God.

Giving Hope

Through our annual Snow Ball, Catholic Charities Foundation of Northeast Kansas raises 50% of all private donations.
These donations help fund our more than 20 programs across our 21-county service area.

St. Rita's Program

Poverty is a difficult cycle to break. In some cases, further education can be the key—but adults returning to school face many obstacles. Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas’ St. Rita program helps students in all walks of life earn trade certifications in high-demand skilled professions and to find jobs with livable wages.

Special thanks to those who have generously donated their time and resources to make the 46th Annual Snow Ball a success.
