COVID-19 CCNY Graphic

The COVID-19 pandemic is a unique challenge for our community, one with many uncertainties. From 9/11 to Superstorm Sandy, Catholic Charities of New York has responded to community-wide disasters promptly, compassionately, and long-term.  We are doing so again in this current crisis.

Catholic Charities Calls on New Yorkers to Include all Immigrants in COVID-19 Assistance

It is disappointing that in this unprecedented crisis, the federal government’s $2 trillion CARES Act relief package leaves behind millions of hard-working families, school-children, and taxpaying immigrants who are seeking to adjust their status as legal residents and citizens.

Need Assistance Because of COVID-19?

Catholic Charities is open and ready to respond to COVID-19 by connecting people to our services, programs, and caseworkers. Here are ways we can help: food assistance, emergency wage/utility relief, childcare, eviction prevention, advocacy, and immigration.

Lent & Spring 2020 – Predictably Repeating?

Lent – predictably brings penance & Springtime every year. Really! There is nothing predictable about Lent and Spring, 2020. COVID-19 has struck our world. Check out the map – only the penguins seem to have escaped – at least for the moment.
