Challenging Poverty, Caring for Seniors and Counseling Immigrants.
The fires have been put out.
But our work has just begun.
Even before the devastating wildfires, our community has been hit with skyrocketing rents and soaring housing prices year after year, leaving some of our most vulnerable neighbors without housing. As the largest social services agency in Santa Rosa serving people experiencing homelessness, we are gearing up to help even more since the city has lost so much of its housing to the fires. Your support is vital. If you are able, please help by clicking here.
For the latest on how Catholic Charities is putting the support of our community to work in fire recovery, please see the most recent update from our Executive Director, Len Marabella.
Tonight in our communities more than 7,000 people will be homeless and 136,000 people will go hungry. We meet basic needs of children and adults in crisis and help create long-term solutions for stable lives.
CARING FOR SENIORS
By providing loving support for seniors, their caregivers, and their families, we enable almost 200 people annually to age gracefully at home rather than in an institution.
As the largest non-profit immigration services provider in the North Bay, we help almost 2,000 people per year with legal resident applications, citizenship classes, and refugee services.
