Due to the spike in COVID infections, our Kansas City and St. Joseph offices will be working remotely from January 5 through January 31.

Please call 816-221-4377 to schedule an appointment for emergency assistance. Case management will be provided remotely.

Welcome Center assistance will be provided in person on Wednesdays, January 5, 12, 19 and 26 from 8:30 a.m .- 3:30 p.m. with walk-ins accepted, first come, first served. We ask you to wear a facemask while in the office.

New Location, New Experience, New Hope!

While guests dine and dance, we will celebrate with our friends in raising money for the wonderful programs and services that Catholic Charities offers to any client who walks through the doors.

Our at-risk neighbors need help.

Together, we can meet the need.

Welcome Center

The Welcome Center is the single point of entry into services – offering emergency assistance to address immediate, critical needs. Over $1M in rent, utility, food and other assistance was provided last year.

Employment Services

The average income of those seeking services was approximately $774 per month. Of those who obtained our Employment Services, their incomes rose to $1,836 per month.

Children & Family Services

Case management, parenting education and child development assessments help increase family stability and creates a nurturing environment in which children can grow and thrive. Mom’s Empowerment and Germaine’s Little Lambs serve families from pregnancy and through the child’s preschool years.

Housing Services

A home is more than simply a shelter — it’s a foundation that allows you to focus on the future. If you don’t have a permanent place to call home, it’s difficult — if not impossible — to focus on any other aspect of your life.

Veteran Services

85% of veterans who participated in our rapid rehousing program were successfully housed at the completion of the program and 93% were still in their home six months later!

Deaf & Disability Ministries

For the past 30 years, Catholic Charities has worked to integrate persons with disabilities fully into the life of their faith community.

Many Starfish Need Many Star Throwers

The Bible tells us in Matthew 25:35, 40 this is what being a star thrower means. Putting on the heart of Christ means serving the least among us whether hungry or thirsty, help getting over sickness, or in bad situations. Christ did not come to be among the highest in society, but as a lowly servant seeking to save the isolated and cast out. The manger and shepherds were symbols of that, that even the simplest of situations can bring about the greatest of miracles.
