How We're Responding. How You Can Help

Catholic Charities helps people when they are most vulnerable and in need. No matter who. No matter why. It’s what we’ve been doing for more than 100 years.

Since late March, we’ve received more than 2,300 calls and distributed over $400,000 in aid to people furloughed, laid off, or let go due to the pandemic. Every day, our COVID Relief Call Center team speaks to about 90 people facing pandemic-related hardships.

With your help, we will be able help even more people during this historical time of need. Right now, through the generosity of an anonymous foundation pledge…

The first $50,000 in donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact of your gift!

Each year, Catholic Charities services impact more than 100,000 people in our community. We know that due to the pandemic, the need will be even greater this year.

Here are two examples of recent COVID-19 Relief calls:

After having her hours cut by nearly 75 percent, Karen, a fulltime home healthcare worker, needs help paying utility bills.

James and Sandra never imagined losing BOTH of their jobs due to a pandemic. After making their recent car loan, mortgage, and utility payments, the parents of two found themselves needing help, for the first time ever, to cover remaining expenses.

Your gift will be designated specifically for COVID-19 relief, including mortgage, rent, utilities, and other direct aid for people like Karen, James and Sandra, who are facing temporary or extraordinary hardship.
