Catholic Charities has helped alleviate, prevent, and reduce poverty in Santa Clara communities for over 60 years and continues to do so. How?
With your continued assistance.
Last year, your donations helped alleviate hunger for low income seniors.
More than 123,000 meals continue to feed grandmothers and grandfathers, trailblazers, and retires in our community who are living on restricted incomes. Instead of allowing them to sinking into despair and loneliness, you continue to show much-needed respect to the elders in our communities.
Your donations continue to make an impact in our community by preventing poverty through education.
This is one key way to break the cycle of poverty. Over 3,000 children are enrolled in Catholic Charities’ CORAL after-school program. This means, we can continue to improve the literacy skills of children from underprivileged schools who generally don’t have access to extracurricular educational opportunities.
Through your continued donations and support, you’ve already help reduce poverty by providing possibilities.
More than 700 low-income families in our neighborhood can now afford a place to live, thanks to our Supportive Housing Services. By providing your assistance, over 150 people now have jobs through our Focus for Work program. They can finally provide for their families and have a home to feel safe in.
Your compassion provides comprehensive social services that transform medical care into wellness and life success.
Last year, we served over 200 vulnerable people in our community through our Integrated Primary Care Behavioral Health Clinic. This year, we hope to help more people get the medical treatment, mental health services, and substance abuse counseling they deserve to move forward.
You can continue to help vulnerable people achieve stability and maintain dignity through the following programs:
— Early education
— Affordable housing opportunities
— Daybreak Cares — elder care for seniors
— Focus for Work — employment assistance
— STEM (science, technology, education, math)
— John XXIII Multicultural Health Clinic (medical treatment, mental health services, and substance abuse counseling)
