Stafford County Kansas - Ending Poverty

Stafford County Core Community

Poverty is a Community Problem Requiring Community Solutions

At Stafford County Core we are Building Community to Solve Poverty

Our Mission:

Engaging the community to lift families out of poverty.

Building Community

A Proven Method

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;

indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead. 

ABOUT US

Here at Stafford County Core, we believe no one should live in poverty. Families and communities can take charge of their destinies and if given the right tools and support, economic stability can be achieved.

Through an approach that combines our techniques with the individualized support of dedicated volunteers and the resources of organizations and communities, we create an environment that educates, empowers, and equips our members to move up and out of poverty successfully. 

We have 2 sites for Core - Stafford and St. John. Meetings are held weekly on Monday evenings.

Stafford County, Kansas is in the center of the state. It is a flat county punctuated with grass-covered sand dunes. It is home to the largest inland salt water marsh in the United States (the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge). Visitors who come for the outdoors will also find small, unique communities, rural experiences and hidden treasures.

The economic life of the county revolves around winter wheat, cattle, petroleum, local schools and local farmers coop.  The county currently maintains three school districts in Stafford County, Stafford – USD 349, St. John/Hudson – USD 350 and Macksville – USD 351.
