What if you lost everything image

Harvest of Giving

What would you do if you lost your home? Your health? Your ability to earn a living? Where would you turn for help?

Every day, people come to Catholic Charities looking for hope - it's in your power be a part of the solution.

Catholic Charities provides food, housing, health services, emergency assistance, and dozens of other services to those in need in 14 counties of upstate NY, but we can't do it without your support. Please give generously to the Harvest of Giving appeal to help your neighbors in need.
