Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas Part Three

Lamar-Hunt-Jr.-Catholic-Charities-225x300Lamar Hunt Jr. and Loretto Foundation continue to support Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas due to their level of service to the community. Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas has a Three Pillars mission. The third pillar is Healthcare. As stated on their website, “We realize that when our community neighbors are sick or in need of healthcare, there’s not always somewhere to turn. Our healthcare programs and services offer compassionate care for patients and families of all ages and stages from new mothers to the elderly.” Hospice care is another service which provides nursing, spiritual and emotional care for those with life-limiting illnesses. They can provide this service in private homes, assisted living communities, care facilities and hospitals. In-Lamar Hunt Jr. with the Catholic Charities
