About Us

Johnson County Cares is a collaboration


between social service agencies, church representatives, UCM students and faculty, and concerned citizens to help address and solve issues related to poverty and homelessness in Johnson County, MO.


We're not a non-profit agency but rather a way of coming together with those in our community who seek to serve those who struggle with unmet needs.


We work to address needs by identifying and connecting resources, with a focus on helping to lay the foundation work for a project or need, then allowing the project or program coordinators to build and grow as they see fit.


We provide support through guidance, volunteers, fundraising, and promotion.


We meet at 8:00 AM on the third Friday of each month in the Jack Moore Community Room, at the west end of the train depot in Warrensburg.


Everyone is welcome - join us!
