Urgent! We Need Your Help and Hope

Posted on March 26, 2018 by Alice Kenny  |  Share

Last year was a year of devastation for so many of our brothers and sisters: hurricanes; evictions; lives and livelihoods swept away. But because of compassionate neighbors like you, it was also a year of great hope.

In the aftermath of natural disasters and economic uncertainties, we’ve met countless hungry and homeless newcomers and native New Yorkers seeking our help to build a better life. Your commitment has provided us with the resources to do more to serve our neediest neighbors and help them build a better life right here in New York.

Neighbors like Enid and her two children, Ava (15) and Juan (9), wouldn’t have found that sense of community without compassionate hearts like yours. Having lost everything to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, Enid anxiously uprooted her family and moved to her brother’s home in Spring Valley, New York. She was uncertain and feared for her family’s future.

Fortunately, Enid discovered Catholic Charities. We were able to use our resources and connections to provide what the family needed to get back on track. It is a true blessing to report that the family is acclimating quickly. Enid has secured a stable job and her children are doing well in school.
