Welcome to Ashby House

Empowering homeless families and individuals to improve self-sufficiency, self-advocacy, and holistic recovery

Dear Kansas Community,

Ashby House is diligently following all guidelines provided by the CDC and KDHE. This will include health screenings for coronavirus symptoms. Our priority is keeping our staff, clients, and community safe during these difficult times.

In response to COVID-19, Ashby House will be making the following changes.

  • The Emergency Shelter will limit intakes to Kansas residents only, with priority given to women and families with children. If needed, we are prepared to open emergency beds so our residents can maintain safe social-distancing. Anyone in need of shelter should call ahead for availability at (785) 826-4935.
  • In-kind donations will not be accepted at this time. We anticipate accepting these donations again as of April 27th, 2020.
  • Foot traffic will be kept to a minimum. Volunteers will be welcomed back again on April 27th, 2020. ( This includes volunteers for The Life Skills Program)


In uncertain times the most vulnerable people in our communities are at the highest risk. We greatly appreciate all community members taking every precaution necessary to keeping everyone as safe as possible. Millard Fuller the founder of Habitat for Humanity said it best. “For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people's love and concern for each other.” Our thoughts and prayers are with all the front line health and service agency workers as they continue serving our community's needs during these difficult times.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Grace and Peace,

Andy Houltberg
