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.
These are stressful times our community and our world. We encourage everyone to pay close attention to their mental health.

It could cause others without mental health conditions to experience symptoms such as anxiety or depression for the first time in their lives. Please take a look at these resources to help manage stress and anxiety during this crisis:
To protect the health and safety of our clients, staff and visitors, Wyandot Center will temporarily close Frank Williams Outreach Center, effective Monday, March 16 until further notice. Providing these vital services is very important to us, and we will resume normal operations as soon as we can assure the safety of the people we serve and staff.
