PROJECTS

Food Pantry

We are the primary food pantry for all of Crawford County.  It is open weekday afternoons from 1:00pm-3:00pm and is staffed by volunteers.  Families who qualify for assistance are allowed to receive supplemental food once a month.  The application process includes verification of residence, numbers of persons in the household, verifying IDs for adults and proof of residency (medical card, birth certificate, school records) for all those in the household and proof of income.  Effective immediately, each month, clients must bring proof of residence and income.  The food pantry is supported by United Way, food drives, the EFSP grant and private donations.

Christmas Distribution

Christmas distribution is another HUGE project at Wesley House.  We start making plans for Christmas in August.  It is one of our largest special projects and requires a large amount of volunteers. Working with our community partners, Wesley House provides generous boxes of food and the Salvation Army provides toys. This partnership has proven to be very good for the community as well as those who receive assistance.  

Coats for Kids

 

During the winter months, as long as funding is available, coats are available to children 0-18 yrs.  If they are 18, they must still be in high school.  We do take referrals from other organizations and schools.  We do follow our normal application guidelines to qualify.  Cozy Kids is made possible through a grant from the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas.  

Commodity Food Senior Program

 

Crawford County has just been approved by the State of Kansas and USDA to receive CFSP food boxes for low income seniors ages 60 and over.  Boxes are distributed monthly at Wesley House, through our convenient (westside) alley pickup.  Seniors must enroll and qualify to receive the food box. 

 

Identification Support Project

 

     This program assists indiviudals, who qualify for the program based on income, to be eligible to receive any documentation needed to secure employment and housing.  This program will pay up to $50 for 100 quailified individuals to receive all documents needed including birth certificate, Kansas Driver's License or state issued ID Card and Social Security card.  Our homeless day shelter clients will have first priority.  This project is made possible by the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas
