Catholic Charities Resource Bus
KANSAS - The Catholic Charities Resource Bus is a mobile outreach initiative of the Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas that was made possible through a donation from Atmos Energy of Dallas, Texas. The Resource Bus brings needed services to people and communities that find transportation a barrier to accessing them. In this case, the wheelchair accessible mobile unit provides access to basic social services over a 21 county area of Northeastern Kansas. The unit is staffed with case managers that can help with such things as emergency food assistance and referrals to other social programs. The long range goal is to help families that are in poverty or in a state of crisis and bring them into a more stable and self-sustaining situation. Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is a non-profit agency that was founded in 1956. Today it assists over 85,000 people of all faiths through projects such as the Resource Bus.
