Catholic Charity financial assistance.

Catholic Charities provides a number of assistance programs to families. A comprehensive listing of the emergency resources, financial assistance programs for paying bills, rent or housing, food and counseling services offered are listed below. People of all backgrounds and religions may be able to receive help Also find locations and phone numbers of the main Catholic Charity offices near you, and they are listed by state and county.

There are over 3,000 offices, and the agency is involved in providing some form of assistance to over 15 million individuals each and every year. The services offered by Catholic Charities are extensive, and range from free or low cost food, housing programs to strengthen families, rent help, and financial help paying for basic needs. The exact types of Catholic Charity programs near you and social services offered will vary by location, church, and center which are listed below. Most of the centers only have a limited amount of funding to offer as well.

Financial assistance and basic needs from the charity

The food pantries, soup kitchens and free food banks that are available to struggling families is how Catholic Charities helps the highest number of people. Millions of free hot meals, emergency food and grocery boxes, and holiday meals are provided every year. The pantry often serves as a bridge to the client while they find longer term support. From time to time groceries, food boxes and lunch or dinner meals may even be delivered as well to the homebound, disabled and seniors. Most of the Catholic Charity churches are also involved in running soup kitchens as well as congregate dining sites.

A number of emergency housing services are offered by Catholic Charities. People who were evicted can find shelter. Individuals can then work with a case manager to move into short term transitional housing, then together you will explore permanent housing options in your local community. As part of this the Catholic Charity social worker will show clients how to get financial help, including funds for paying security deposits and first month’s rent.

 

 

 

Catholic Charity affiliated churches may offer financial assistance for paying bills as well as for other basic needs. Of course funding needs to be available, and applicants need to meet conditions before Catholic Charities will provide them with any type of emergency financial assistance. There is often a waiting list in place by each church, and funds are first come and served. Cash assistance can be provided to the working poor to pay for some or all of the following.

  • Utilities - Money to pay to prevent a disconnection of electric or water bills. Or if you have run out of heating fuel or oil then Catholic Charities may help.
  • Clothing - Including work uniforms and school for children attending school.
  • Prescriptions - Only a select few locations can pay for medications, and this form of assistance is very limited.
  • Rental assistance - Get help in an emergency to pay rent if you are faced with imminent eviction, and some funds can be paid for security deposits.
  • Medical needs - Catholic Charities often has information on clinics or applications to Christian health insurance programs.

Before any financial aid is offered, they will usually need to ensure people can get back on their feet after the funds have been paid out. As the emergency assistance for basic needs is very short term in nature, and all applicants need to show the ability to be self-sufficient. Some Catholic Charity services are also very limited in funding capacity. Other resources offered are listed below, or find additional information on high demand services, such as help with rent payments.

Catholic Charities social services

Applicants will normally be assigned either a case or social worker. This is done as the Catholic Charities near you wants to partner with the client to stabilize their situation. This process will involve the client and social worker partnering together to address everything from employment to budgeting, parenting classes, and much more. The charity can help the poor get back on track or work to rehouse the homeless.

 

 

 

 

Counseling, including refugee services, immigration, assistance for pregnancy, adoption, and more. This form of outreach is one of the main social services available. The free counseling sessions are used to empower the client. Catholic Charities also has a focus on overall family development, whether that is for pregnant moms to be or immigrants to the area. There are also referrals given too, including details on how to find help for immigrants or other vulnerable groups.

Employment services, including career counseling and resume review, are provided to almost 100,000 people per year by Catholic Charities. Social workers and case managers from Catholic Charities know that finding a job and increasing a client’s skills and income is key to becoming self-sufficient.
