Important Updates Regarding Wyandot BHN and COVID-19

Wyandot BHN is making changes to services due to COVID-19. 

Finding a Way to Serve: Frank Williams Outreach Center Modifies Services During Pandemic

When coronavirus began to take hold on the Kansas City metro area in mid-March, Frank Williams Outreach Center was forced to shut down. Frank’s typically serves close to 60 clients per day under normal circumstances, offering spaces to shower, do laundry, store items, socialize and use the computer and the phone. The team at Frank’s knew the community would need access to these services during the pandemic and they got to work on a plan to make these services available in a way that was safe for everyone involved.
