Bronx Fire 1-14-22 remembrance wall

Catholic Charities of New York delivered emergency cash cards to our local affiliated agency, Part of the Solution (POTS), and St. Simon Stock - St. Joseph Parish to distribute the families impacted by the fire for immediate emergency needs. Both POTS and the parish have identified and been in contact with over 30 families from the building. 

The Pandemic Hampered Their Stride. They’re Rising Back Up.

In partnership with The New York Times. “I’m still struggling,” Mr. Sanchez, 53, said early last month, “but I’m in such a great, beautiful space in my life.” In January 2020, Mr. Sanchez had a cancerous kidney removed, and as he recovered, the pandemic began, requiring him to isolate vigilantly to protect his health. Critical financial support arrived from Catholic Charities Community Services. Mr. Sanchez received help with food, transportation and cleaning, as well as rent for his Bronx apartment. 

Memories of Christmases Past

The Christmas season, a time for giving, naturally fits the mission of Catholic Charities. Those who work for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York are privileged to partake in that Christmas spirit. Following are three Christmas memories generously shared by Catholic Charities’ leaders.

Saint Nicholas Volunteer Day makes helping others a personal experience

The annual Saint Nicholas Volunteer Day sponsored by Catholic Charities New York was held at the Church of Our Saviour in Manhattan, during which donors shopped for coats, jackets, gloves and scarves for needy New York families this Christmas season. Over 1,000 families were assisted. Cardinal Timothy Dolan was among those who shopped for a needy family.
