Project Concern providing Public Transportation and Meals Since 1971
Project Concern Inc., a 501 (c) 3 Not for Profit Organization has been servicing Atchison County Residents since 1971. We provide many services for our citizens on a daily basis that help them with accessibility, mobility, and stability in their lives. Monday through Friday we provide people of all ages with nutritious meals at our centers in Atchison and Effingham. We provide meals on wheels to people with limited mobility. We provide safe, centralized locations for people to enjoy games and each other’s company. We provide public transportation to those with limited or no access to a vehicle.
As you can see we provide many services to our community. The best part about the services we provide is that they are available to anyone of all ages.
Public Transportation: Currently, 15% of our Atchison County Residents do not have access to personal or private transportation like a personal vehicle or taxi service. Our public transportation service is available Monday through Friday 7:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays 9am to 3pm. The cost to ride is $3 roundtrip. Please call (913) 367-4655 to schedule your ride.
Meals: We serve lunch daily at our locations in Atchison and Effingham at 11:45 a.m. Monday through Friday. A suggested donation of $3 for ages 60 and over and $6 for ages under 60. Activities and games like bingo and cards follow lunch at 12:30 p.m.
Meals on Wheels: We deliver meals daily, Monday through Friday to those who cannot leave their homes or have access to get to town. A suggested donation of $3 for ages 60 and over.
