New Human & Social Services Directory

April 9, 2014 

The new 2014-15 edition of the Lee’s Summit’s Human & Social Services Directory is available.

The 28-page directory is a list of services, by category, that are available to those in the Lee’s Summit community. It lists sources of clothing, education, employment assistance, financial planning and assistance, healthcare, food and nutrition, housing, senior services, thrift stores and youth services. There are contacts for mental health services, first-time home buyers program and people with disabilities.

The annual publication is compiled, published and distributed by the city’s Human Services Advisory Board, which works to identify services needed in the city and to coordinate efforts to meet those needs. Sue Jackson, a board member, said the directory is a great resource tool for those assisting people living in the community as well as for anyone seeking what resources are available to them. The directory can be downloaded by going to and on the main page choose Boards and Commissions, then select Human Services Advisory Board. On that page click on the directory. Hard copies of the directory also are available at City Hall.

Lee's Summit Journal is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
