Hunger has gripped many during the pandemic. We’ve seen lines around the block to get into the supermarkets. In some places, there are miles-long lines of cars waiting for a chance at getting food to feed their families. Food insecurity has been one of the most devasting effects of living through Coronavirus. If the crisis is incredible in scope, the response has been equally incredible - Catholic Charities Community Services of New York (CCCS) recently distributed its 500,000th meal during the pandemic.

Rent Relief in Dutchess County

A one-time rent subsidy is available for low-income County residents who were previously “rent-burdened” prior to March 1, 2020 and have experienced an additional decrease in income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dutchess County and the City of Poughkeepsie have also partnered with Catholic Charities Community Services of Dutchess County, to provide support during the application process.

New Catholic Charities New York PSA: ‘In Service To All’

“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.”

Free Air Conditioners for Seniors

The fight against the Coronavirus isn’t over. During Summertime it is necessary for New York City to protect its most vulnerable citizens. “Seniors who are low income are suffering right now,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio in a city address. “We need to make sure they are protected against the heat ahead. The idea of GetCool NYC is to focus on those who are most vulnerable – make sure they are safe, make sure they’re kept cool.”
