Help House celebrates 18 years of service

By Raylene Quaney

Our story: In July 2003, a vision came together with the opening of the Help House of Osage County, Kan. This effort by the Churches of Osage County United Inc. has now been serving the county for more than 18 years!

Giving of food and clothing for that long has taken a lot of donations, too. From the bottom of our heart, we thank all of the sponsors and donors over the years to make this ministry the success that it is today.

As we look to the future, Help House will continue to be a place where families can find hope.

Matthew 25:35-40 is our guiding principle.

Remembering 2021

During the calendar year of 2021, Help House served a total of 379 unduplicated households, which included 1,053 unduplicated individuals.
