Give Hope. Give Healing.
Give to Help Those Most Vulnerable.
Each day, children, individuals and families who otherwise could not afford the care they need reach out to Catholic Charities for help. They are not turned away because of people like you.
Generosity makes certain Charity Care Dollars are available to cover the cost of therapy for those who cannot pay or can only pay a portion of the cost. Generosity also ensures financial assistance for families in crisis.
Your gift to Catholic Charities lifts burdens, calms anxiety and quiets fears through compassionate mental health care, charity and advocacy inspired by Christ’s love. Thank you for helping others!

Stories of Hope.
Your Gift Matters!
At the heart of every gift-making decision is knowing your gift will make a difference. Read these stories from children and families who came to Catholic Charities for care. Generosity allowed us to help them through their struggles, crises, and hardships toward hope, healing and happier times.
‘Vanessa’, 4th grade, confided in a friend about abuse she’d experienced while visiting relatives over the summer. Her friend, frightened for Vanessa, encouraged her to talk with a trusted teacher who called Catholic Charities. Within a few hours, Vanessa and her parents were sitting together in Rhonda’s office. Through Rhonda’s competent care and gentle approach, they began unraveling what had occurred and how possibly to move forward. Compassion and concern for Vanessa came before any conversation about the cost for services. When it was determined her parents had minimal means to pay for therapy, Charity Care Dollars covered what they could not. Vanessa and her parents are continuing individual and family counseling. With each session, they move beyond anger, guilt, confusion and sadness toward healing and happier times.
32-year-old ‘Casey’ pulled into our parking lot fleeing her partner who had been abusing her. Alone, with nothing but her clothing and 3-year-old daughter, our staff connected her with community resources to be safe for the evening. Funding allowed us to work with her to secure an apartment, provide her with financial assistance, and to receive counseling to help her cope with the trauma she experienced. Casey expressed, “I know that God sent me to Catholic Charities, and I thank God for all of you. You saved my life.”
