While the EOF team is proud of our locally focused efforts and network, sometimes outside resources are also helpful. Just like we partner with Community Action Agencies across the state, there are also statewide agencies that have reached into Wyandotte County to partner with us.
Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is a church ministry that offers emergency assistance services for basic needs such as heating bills, food, and housing, for families in poverty, the unemployed, homeless, stranded, and struggling, as well as immigrants and senior citizens. Their social workers can also refer those in need to free legal aid and more.
