How to find assistance for the homeless in Atchison County




After discussions with many service providers at our Stop, Collaborate, & Listen events we have created a list of resources to share with the community.


If you need help with permanent housing please see the information below. If you or someone you know is lacking stable, safe, and adequate housing and needs immediate help outside of normal business hours please contact the Atchison police dispatch (913-367-4323). They will assess the situation and get in touch with the appropriate resources.
