Public Statements

Ongoing Solidarity & Willingness to Help

For more than a century, Catholic Charities has experienced New York as more vibrant and industrious because of the long-standing contributions of immigrants and refugees. Unfortunately, we hear too much rhetoric and see actual and proposed public policies that are neither welcoming of newcomers, nor protective of the safety of our country as a whole.  Catholic Charities will continue to enhance our efforts to assist immigrants and refugees in creating a better life for themselves and their families and take their place in building a stronger nation. We are privileged and proud to welcome, integrate, and stand with newcomers who seek to make the United States their new home.
