COVID-19 Emergency Assistance

Catholic Charities remains “open for business” and we are here to help those in need during this unprecedented time.  In addition to assisting those who typically rely on our services, Catholic Charities is now seeing an increased need in our community due to job loss, unexpected expenses, and other COVID-19-related issues.  Many individuals and families are seeking assistance from Catholic Charities for the first time.

Can you help us provide for those who are facing economic difficulties as a result of the pandemic?  Current needs include food, specialized infant formula, diapers, prescription assistance, and assistance related to housing and homelessness.

Additionally, the CARES Act has changed how deductions will be considered. Please review the new IRS guidelines for charitable giving here.

Thank you for supporting the ministries of Catholic Charities through your prayers and financial support.  We are #StrongerTogether
