A ministry of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas dispenses love and hope to our neighbors in need throughout our 21 county service area.
We offer a wide range of specialized programs and services that span from the beginning to life’s end. We help with immediate survival needs including food, clothing and shelter. More than that, we educate, give guidance and provide resources that will result in long-term change. All services provided are based on need — not religion, race or nationality.
The Catholic Charities mobile resource bus is back in action, visiting Emporia once per month. Catholic Charities, which provides food and other emergency assistance, parks the bus at St. Catherine’s Catholic Church (205 S Lawerance St) from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Currently, it offers a drive-thru service. Dates for the remainder of 2020 include August 19, September 9, October 14, November 11, and December 9.
