Welcome To Finney County Help Desk

The Finney County Community Health Coalition consists of members from health, social service, education, community, and other service providers. The Coalition provides its community with access to information and services that promote good health and well-being for all residents.

Because the Coalition's membership is wide and varied, it can target nearly every county service area and constituency in Finney County and beyond. Target areas include, but are not limited to, homeless, elders-in-need, at-risk youth, families in transition from welfare to work, intensive rehabilitation populations, and family life/marriage education.

Through its periodic, community-wide health summits, the Coalition strives to hear and respond to concerns and health needs of residents. The Coalition members then seek to address programs, policies, and practices of service providers by providing technical assistance for fine-tuning of current services or by creating new projects as necessary.

The Coalition is proactive in public transportation, issues in immigration, tobacco use (public smoking bans and cessation assistance), parent training, and at-risk youth behaviors.

The average smoker spends about $150 a month on cigarettes. That is almost $2000 a year. If you are tired of paying the price, call the KS Tobacco Quitline.

There is no safe level of exposure to tobacco smoke. Any exposure to tobacco smoke, even an occasional cigarette or exposure to secondhand smoke is harmful.
