“Catholic Charities’ workers, you wear no distinctive uniforms, no scrubs, no stethoscopes, no badges. You wear the same clothes as your neighbors. Our color, race, ethnicity is as diverse as those we serve. Dedicated workers like you bring professionalism and compassion that is literally saving lives.”

A New Lottery System for Affordable Housing in New York City

There’s a new housing lottery in New York City. Well, not a new lottery exactly, but a new portal from NYC.GOV where you can register and get into the lottery, giving you the ability to search by neighborhood, rent, amenities, size, etc. Among the housing that will become available for lottery applications as of July 1st is Catholic Charities of New York’s own Second Farms, a 319 unit residence in the West Farms neighborhood in the Bronx.

Racism Through the Lens of Faith

On Friday June 19th, there was a virtual gathering of faith leaders who took on the colossal task of looking at racism through the lens of faith and religion. This discussion dove bravely into the role that religion and faith has had and can still have in racism in America. Having it on June 19th was appropriate because that day was Juneteenth, the commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States.

English Online at The International Center of Catholic Charities

Back in March all in-person activities stopped at the International Center of Catholic Charities Community Services (‘the Center’). The Center plays a big role in immigrant communication skills, which are a vital part of becoming successful in NYC. The Center quickly turned their in-person operation into collaborative online classes and has grown. “I'm very proud and grateful to belong to the International Center. It is important to me to continue seeing my teacher, I really appreciate them. The English class makes me forget the pandemic while I am in it.”
