The Lincoln Center Campus is owned and operated by a non-profit organization — the Marshall County Community Resource and Education Center (MCCREC). The organization was established in 2003 by a group of concerned citizens whose goal was to create a resource and referral system to seamlessly connect individuals and families with the assistance and services they need in order to remain or move toward self-sufficiency.
The Lincoln Center Campus was purchased from USD 364 in 2004. A year later, with the help of volunteers, the Head Start preschool was built.
Shortly after that another new building was erected that is home to the offices of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services (SRS) and Pawnee Mental Health.
Lincoln Center (an old elementary school) houses many other service oriented agencies. Those agencies include Parents As Teachers, the WIA/GED program, Smart Start Marshall County, Northeast Kansas Community Action Program (NEK-CAP), and Highland Community College and Infant Toddler Services.
Visitors to Lincoln Center are greeted by a receptionist who assists with the Intake process. The Intake process identifies and assesses the various needs of each client and referrals are then made to the appropriate agencies. Because referrals can be made during the initial visit, services are often in place on the day the request is made.
Lincoln Center also has a large multipurpose room that is available as a resource to the community. Last year the multipurpose room was used over 300 times serving children and families, and for various meetings and events.
