National Family Month is celebrated from Mother's Day (May 8) through Father's Day (June 19). During this time, Catholic Charities emphasizes the value of family and supports the growth and strength of family relationships. The definition of a family is different for everyone. National Family Month is an opportunity to reflect on who your family is and how you can strengthen those ties.

Sarah came to Catholic Charities after becoming homeless. She had fled a domestic violence situation, and ran out of funds before she could find a job and become settled.

When Sarah heard she could take classes in computer skills, she jumped at the chance. There she met Sherry, the Life Skills Instructor, who worked with her to set goals and…

We Are Catholic.
Because we are Catholic, we have a responsibility to be Christ-like to others. Throughout the Gospel, God calls us to serve His people, and we take our calling seriously. “For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me...whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:35-36; 40
We Are Your Charity.
