In Honor of Your Mother
Since 2005, your local Catholic Charities has joined more than 1,700
Catholic Charities agencies working to reduce poverty in the U.S.
Dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly with our neighbors to
feed the hungry, find shelter for the homeless and displaced, offer
safety and healing for the abused, and give legal assistance to
immigrants seeking citizenship and a better life for their families.
The work of CCET is made possible through your continued prayers
and financial support. You have provided over a million meals to feed
your hungry neighbors in East Texas; every dollar you donated to the
Roses for Food program supplied 8 meals to those who would otherwise
go without. Now that 1 in 4 children, 1 in 5 adults, and 1 in 7 seniors in
East Texas are “at risk of hunger”, your support is vital.
Homelessness is at a critical stage in much of the diocese. CCET
staff make referrals for those needing shelter to partner agencies
several times a week. Many referrals are made for those unable to
meet basic needs such as medicine, utilities and rent. In the past
three years, CCET staff and volunteers gave over 600 fans and
installed over 400 air conditioners in the homes of poverty-level
elderly and families with children.
Thanks to your donations, over 1,200 individuals and families have
received immigration legal assistance from our accredited staff and
volunteers; over 150 of those cases involved women and children
who were victims of violence and domestic abuse. More than 100
young adults and teens now have the ability to work legally and
to pursue higher education.
