To Serve and To Lift
of those coming to us were unemployed
of those served were widowed, single, divorced or separated
The Welcome Center is the single point of entry into services – offering emergency assistance to address immediate, critical needs. Over $1M in rent, utility, food and other assistance was provided last year.
The average income of those seeking services was approximately $774 per month. Of those who obtained our Employment Services, their incomes rose to $1,836 per month.
Children & Family Services
Case management, parenting education and child development assessments help increase family stability and creates a nurturing environment in which children can grow and thrive. Mom’s Empowerment and Germaine’s Little Lambs serve families from pregnancy and through the child’s preschool years.
A home is more than simply a shelter — it’s a foundation that allows you to focus on the future. If you don’t have a permanent place to call home, it’s difficult — if not impossible — to focus on any other aspect of your life.
85% of veterans who participated in our rapid rehousing program were successfully housed at the completion of the program and 93% were still in their home six months later!
Deaf & Disability Ministries
For the past 30 years, Catholic Charities has worked to integrate persons with disabilities fully into the life of their faith community.
