COVID-19 Information

Need food or housing assistance? Get help here.

Nearly 65,000 people in Johnson County struggle to get enough food to eat.  At times, they’re forced to make difficult choices between feeding their families and paying their rent.

Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is here to help.  Our Overland Park Family Support Center (FSC) is available to low-income individuals and families who need food or assistance with basic utility payments, housing, clothing or medical prescriptions.

The help goes beyond meeting immediate needs.  An on-site case manager works to identify solutions and resources that will lead to long-term change.

GIVING HELP. GIVING HOPE.

Although Catholic Charities had been serving Johnson County, it was determined that an on-site FSC in Overland Park could more directly meet the community’s needs. The Overland Park FSC opened in 2010.

This past fiscal year, demand for services continued to grow in Overland Park. We served 10,490 unduplicated individuals.  We provided food assistance 30,714 times.  Ten percent of the food assistance went to seniors.  Household and personal items increased 37% while the distribution of gently used clothing grew by 102% and the number of financial education participants was 133% higher.

We could not assist our neighbors in need without the support and generosity of  individuals, businesses, parishes and foundations who step up to organize food drives, make gifts-in-kind, volunteer in our food pantry and make financial contributions.  We are truly blessed.
