Emergency Assistance Fund

Utility bills are past due and the electricity gets shut off.

There’s no food in the kitchen.

There’s no money for basics like soap, shampoo and toothpaste.

Every winter, these situations deal a harsh blow to our vulnerable neighbors and create barriers to basic life that they cannot overcome alone. The Catholic Charities Emergency Assistance Fund allows us to help with rent, utilities, food, transportation and more – giving them a chance to get back on their feet.

Together, we can meet their need.

Give today.
