SALT LIGHT A parish social ministry resource for outreach, advocacy and catholic social teaching N obody anticipates the added costs a cancer diagnosis entails. In addition to medical care, there is extra gas for trips to treatment and hotel stays for people who live far from the doctor. It’s enough to put families who are already struggling over the financial edge. In just the last month, Catholic Charities has distributed Foundation funds to help two moms dealing with cancer. For one, we kept the utilities connected at home. For another, we paid for car repairs so she could make it to her appointments. Because of our partnership, these mothers got the help and care they needed without having to jump through extra hoops. The goal is always to meet our clients’ basic needs and to remove barriers to treatment.

To help low-income people receiving cancer treatment, Catholic Charities partners with the Cancer Care Northwest Foundation to provide Emergency Assistance grants. We arrange the payments with medical caseworkers in various oncology practices, so the patients usually don’t even have to come to our office.
