Free and Low-Cost Services for Families in Crisis

Catholic Charities Is Here to Help

Clearly alcoholism, addiction, domestic violence and mental health debilitate and isolate those who suffer from them.  Less discussed but at least as tragic is the toll this takes on entire families.  

We are here to help.  Catholic Charities preventive services provide support and stability to families in crisis.  Our goal is to prevent placement of children in out-of-home care. 

We do this by providing:

  • Parent training
  • Casework
  • Counseling
  • Advocacy
  • Referrals to additional supportive services
  • Home visits to monitor family dynamics
  • Mental health assessments
  • Domestic violence assessments and counseling
  • Assistance with housing and daycare services
  • Intervention with school systems

At Catholic Charities NY we offer a wide variety of resources.  

For free and low-cost alcoholism, addiction, domestic violence and mental services call our Catholic Charities Help Line at 888-7444-7900

  • Callers will connect to our live, trained, knowledgeable – and bilingual – staff.  
  • Our staff assesses callers’ needs.  
  • They use up-to-date, reliable advice about available assistance.  
  • They help callers overcome struggles by referring them to the help they need. 
  • And if our staff can’t answer questions right away, they research them and call back.
