About Pantry Services

The wealth of goods presented to individuals and families in crisis each day is available to anyone and everyone. Our pantry exists entirely through donations from heroes in our community, as well as grants. We are unique in the Lawrence community in the items we offer and the quality of clothing, shoes, work attire, kitchenware, household items, food, and diapers made available to anyone in need. Students, elderly, families or any individual is welcome!

There is a wide variety of programs and services available to those in crisis at Ballard. As we work to implement our mission of stabilizing families in Douglas County and Lawrence, we recognize that many of the residents are one life event away from devastation. Ballard wants to help those who are struggling and to see them through a catastrophe beginning to end.

To this end, we offer a variety of programs and services. Read further for more information on our Family Stabilization services, including the Mobile Food Pantry and Emergency Assistance with rent/utilities.
