Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is committed to serving our brothers and sisters in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

In this time of trial, we are reminded of our common humanity—and our calling to support those in need.

Because of the local business closures, many of those we serve have been placed in financial hardship and many will be without food. Our top priorities over the next few weeks are to ensure our food and healthcare ministries remain intact, and after the initial crisis is over, to continue to provide all services.

Our needs are constantly changing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact Denise Ogilvie at dogilvie@catholiccharitiesks.org for more information.
