Human services to help individuals and families in need
In the five county Diocese, thousands of residents are facing hunger, unemployment, poverty, homelessness and feelings of helplessness. Catholic Charities provides a wide range of human services such as case management to individuals and families in need.
Case managers are available to help individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency and to become more independent.
Illness, the loss of a job, a broken marriage, domestic violence, substance addiction and other family and social problems can affect you. Our support offers counseling to address needs, referrals to community resources and follow-up support.
