Help support Catholic Charities' goal of being a 'beacon of hope' for those in need

Over the past year, 20,333 Niagara County neighbors in need of all ages were served by the 10 programs Catholic Charities offers here. We provided basic emergency assistance, including support for food and finding housing. Our licensed counselors offered counseling services and for all ages. We have clinics dedicated to children, teens and their families located in three areas of our county. Our multisystemic therapy program worked with dozens of families to address youth problematic behaviors. WIC, which aims to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk, served thousands.

We are committed to staying at the forefront in providing basic assistance and crucial programs, which serve as a beacon of HOPE for our neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet, or who are facing new challenges with their mental health and well-being. However, we can’t continue to help like this without your generous support.

Appeal 2021, which benefits Catholic Charities’ programs and services, recently launched with a goal of $10 million to address the critical need for the tens of thousands through not only Niagara County, but across all eight counties of Western New York.

If you or someone you know needs assistance (even if you have never needed it before) in Niagara County, call us directly at 716-282-2351. We have offices located in Niagara Falls, North Tonawanda and Lockport.

It is a challenging time for all of us but, thanks to our generous supporters, these crucial Catholic Charities programs continue now when they are needed most. If you can help, please visit ccwny.org/donation. Appeal 2021 runs through June 30.
