Catholic Charities News
The last day to participate in the 2020 U.S. Census is just two weeks away.
Boston depends on your household to respond so that our communities get their fair share of federal funding and representation for the resources we need. For every person not counted, nearly $2,400 per year for the next 10 years is lost in federal funding.
Catholic Charities of Boston is proud to provide workforce development programs, including adult education classes, to hundreds of students in Eastern Massachusetts each year. Education is one of the key steps on the journey to self-sufficiency for many individuals. For 35 million adults in the U.S., English is a second language.
Due the wild fires on the West Coast, Catholic Charities of Boston’s vehicle donation program is currently in the process of evacuating the Medford, Oregon call center, which will effect wait times for those calling to donate a used vehicle. Please be assured we will continue to answer donor calls and process donations. We have Donor Support Representatives working remotely and our San Diego call center is still fully staffed and operational.
However, we are asking donors to anticipate longer hold times. Thank you for your patience as we work through this unanticipated event.
In the City of Boston and across the surrounding areas, many youth face an array of challenges, including gang violence, drugs, social issues and lack of access to basic needs.
