A Friday Fave Shout Out to Johnson County, KS Government's employee-led Feed the Need campaign which exceeded its 2016 goals and helped fill the shelves of 10 Johnson County food pantries, raising nearly 366,000 pounds of food.

Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is thrilled to be one of the 10 local agencies benefiting from the Feed the Need campaign. Julia Amaya, Kulea Evans, Laurie Walker and Lindsey Bruns, all part of our Emergency Assistance Center Team, accepted the check on Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas’ behalf.

Johnson County Government staff, thank you for helping us stock our food pantries' shelves to provide much needed food to our Johnson County neighbors in need! #fridayfave   #joco   #kansascity

You will discover that God can be ‘seen’ also in the face of your brothers and sisters, especially those who are most forgotten: the poor, the hungry, those who thirst, strangers, the sick, those imprisoned. - Pope Francis

Zin Min Htet's Hope Story: One Step At A Time

Since December, the Targeted Assistance Grant (TAG) Program has been working with Zin Min Htet who came with his family from Burma to the United States. While in his country, his leg had to be amputated.

Upon arriving in the United States, he was given the option to apply for Social Security Disability benefits due to having difficulty walking and standing. However, Zin Min Htet did not want to apply for disability benefits. He wanted to be able to work to provide for his family.

His wife also wanted to work and found a job soon after arriving in the Kansas City area. The TAG staff was able to assist Zin Min Htet with accessing health services to get a new prosthetic leg. While waiting to receive his new leg, Zin Min Htet attended English classes daily to improve his ability to get a job. He also attended driving school and received his driver’s license.

This past month, he became employed! Zin Min Htet's family looks forward to being able to take care of themselves without assistance, and also is excited to be able to pay for internet access in their home so their children can work on their homework and continue to learn! #hopestory   #catholiccharities   #refugeeswelcome   #kansascity
