In celebration of World Breastfeeding, there will be a community baby shower for expecting parents and parents with a child under the age of 1. Parents can meet various venders and organizations in Butler County supporting families.

KanCare Ombudsman Office will be one of those vendors. The KanCare Ombudsman Office helps people who are having problems with KanCare and have not been able to get the problem resolved.

The office serves KanCare members and applicants in fixing problems about their services, coverage, access, and rights. The staff and volunteers can help with general KanCare questions and more complicated problems.
