Emergency and Basic Needs Assistance
Catholic Charities doors are open to those who typically rely on our services, and many in our community who are seeking assistance from Catholic Charities for the first time due to loss of income, unexpected expenses, job loss and other expenses.
Can you help provide for those who face economic difficulties? 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, volunteer hours and financial support.
