The need today is real – and Catholic Charities is, as it has been for the last century, here to meet the challenge. hope is central to the work we do every day. hope for our neighbors when they are homeless, hungry, in need or troubled. Everything starts with hope, thanks to the generosity and support of those who give through the annual Appeal.

Now underway through June 30, Appeal 2024 – the agency’s 100th campaign – helps fund many programs and services administered by Catholic Charities along with several ministries through the “Fund for the Faith.”

In just the past year, more than 20,000 neighbors of all ages, faiths or no faith throughout Niagara County were given hope by the programs and services offered by Catholic Charities. These include basic emergency assistance, including support for food, prescriptions, personal care items and heat; two behavioral health clinics located in Niagara Falls and Lockport to provide outpatient care for children and their families; the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) federal nutrition program; and working with dozens of families to address youth problematic behaviors through our multisystemic therapy program. We also offer an in-school social work program in local Catholic elementary schools; a program designed for parents who want to reduce conflict and parent effectively for their children; children’s health home care management; and we work with domestic violence offenders for systemic social change.

Thank you for choosing to give hope by supporting this year’s Appeal. Please visit ccwny.org/donation.

And if you or someone you know needs hope in Niagara County, call us at 716-282-2351. We have offices in Niagara Falls and Lockport.
