  • Editor's Note: The United Way of Dodge City began its annual campaign on Sept. 1. The campaign will run until Feb. 14. In light of United Way's efforts to raise funds for charitable organizations in Dodge City, the Daily Globe will be profiling these organizations. This week's organization is Manna House. Manna House is available to help those in the community who are looking for work or a new home or are in a transition period. Those in financial trouble can find help through Manna House's inviting homeless shelter. Manna House provides shelter for six men and two women. It also has a food pantry, where those in need can find food items from 2 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Currently Manna House has 11 volunteers. Since its founding in Dodge City in 1992, the organization has seen significant growth, particularly over the past three years. “This year and last year have been tremendous as far as food giving,” Director Laura Koehn said. “It's almost overwhelming.” Funds from United Way go toward general upkeep, food and utility bills. Those in need or looking to volunteer can stop by Manna House at 1012 1st Ave between 9:30 a.m. and noon and speak with Laura Koehn. Those in need may also arrive between 2 and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
