Connecting You to Services in the Community

If you are needing up-to-date information about services available in Ellis County, First Call for Help is here for you. Many of the resources are "hidden gems" and until we are in need of a service or resource we often don't know where to turn. 

Our mission is to connect you with what you need--services for children, food resources, pregnancy counseling, employment services and transportation services--all are within reach and available in the community. 

We also provide food assistance between distribution dates of other pantries and when available, diapers and wipes, and  hygiene items such as shampoo or toothpaste can also be provided. These items come from community member donations and from  the St Joseph food pantry. To donate any of these items,  drop them off at our office located 607 E 13th St., Hays. We also have blankets that have been cleaned and donated for the chilly winter months.
