Fall Faithworks 2019

FALL 2019

One of the things I love about Catholic Charities is that we serve so many diverse people throughout the 13 counties of Eastern Washington. In our mission to promote life and dignity, we offer programs that reach people at every stage of life and in every condition. I believe this is what Jesus had in mind when he told us the greatest commandment is to love God, and the second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor. That’s why Catholic Charities continues to offer services that meet the needs all of our neighbors have. For example, take the work we do to house our low-income neighbors. We have developed and manage 1,267 apartment units across Eastern Washington. These affordable, high-quality homes provide the stability individuals, families and seniors need to take the next steps in their lives. We also serve seniors and people living with disabilities by delivering food staples to their homes and doing chores around the house. This need is especially acute in rural areas, where seniors might not have neighbors nearby. Catholic Charities also recognizes that strong families form the foundation of strong communities. Children and parents develop the self-confidence, the tools and the resources they need to live with dignity through St. Margaret’s Shelter, Rising Strong, CAPA/PREPARES, St. Anne’s Children & Family Center, Food For All, the Christmas Bureau, Counseling, Catholic Housing Communities, and Catholic Charities Walla Walla. Because of your support, last year we served over 70,000 individuals! Without the wide range of support Catholic Charities offers, our neighbors— the vulnerable, the working poor and the people who have fallen on hard times—would lose critical services. And without your volunteerism and your donations, we would not be able to serve them. Thank you for your support! God Bless You,
