Southeast Kansas Services offers rent, utility assistance

The SEK team helps individuals and families stabilize their housing through one-time rent and utility emergency assistance, resource navigation for mainstream benefits and financial literacy.

How we help

Rent/Utility Assistance

Financial assistance to help pay overdue electric or gas bills, or rent. Each form of assistance can be provided to an individual one time each year with the primary goal of preventing homelessness.

Case Management

Emergency services offers case management services to help individuals and families identify root problems that led them to their situation of need, addressing daily needs and providing referrals to community resources. The case manager also works with clients to set short- and long-term goals, working with them over time to accomplish those goals and establish life choices that make their goals possible.

Referrals to Community Partners

The staff at Southeast Kansas Services takes a team approach with other organizations in the area to ensure that the needs of our community are met. We often collaborate with other agencies, including Wesley House, Kansas Department of Children & Families, the Salvation Army, SEK-CAP, Smart Start, and local churches.

Eligibility

There are no income guidelines for assistance; eligibility is based on these three criteria:

  • The assistance will prevent homelessness (keep a person in their home for 30 days)
  • The client submits all requested verifications
  • When we create a budget we can identify where the money has gone and that it is spent appropriately (i.e. on bills, etc.)

Assistance may be given once in 12 months for rent and once in 12 months for utilities, but the assistance may not occur within the same six-month period.

How to Receive Help from Southeast Kansas Services

For intake, call (620) 235-0633 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday. We will ask you to share basic information about yourself, your family and your situation so we can determine how best to help you.

“The households we assist daily would face homelessness or be in an unsafe situation without the intervention of Catholic Charities providing necessary services to assist with housing, utilities, resource navigation, and domestic violence prevention and safety planning.”
