Catholic Charities: Follow-up Report
Catholic Charities continues to operate during the Covid-19 pandemic in NYC, Westchester, and the Hudson Valley but it’s not business as usual – some school-based programs are suspended, other services are modified, operated telephonically, or remotely. Especially challenging and precarious are the residential services Catholic Charities operates for people with developmental disabilities, seniors, the homeless, the mentally ill, or those with substance abuse issues – where both staff and clients must still be in close contact. As we provide ongoing services in this “new normal”, Catholic Charities is expanding and adding new services to meet the needs of the hundreds of thousands of people impacted by Covid-19 across the ten counties of the Archdiocese of New York.
Catholic Charities: Food Assistance
We understand that this current crisis has put a significant strain on the available food supply in NYC. The Catholic Charities Feeding Our Neighbors Program is joining forces with government stakeholders, private donors and community partners to open up new opportunities for families and communities to access quality food. In order to try and fulfill your request, we require some basic information about your program. Please fill out the form below.
Please send the completed forms or other inquiries to CCFood@archny.org, or contact us at (646) 457-9730.
Catholic Charities: Immigrant and Refugee Services
Following Catholic Charities Community Services operations, our work with immigrants and refugees remains in place but has shifted remotely for the foreseeable future.
