Together We Can: More than a Roof

This year, our Together We Can Campaign will focus on providing support to recently housed families.

With your help, Catholic Social Services housed 370 households and 900 individuals during fiscal year 2020. Because of the economic and health crises of 2021, we are housing even more families every day.

Move-in day is a day for celebration, but when your new home is only a roof and four walls, there isn’t quite as much to celebrate.

Families and case managers work hard to get to move-in day–a day filled with anticipation and relief.  The keys are handed over, but the families still need help to be set up for long term success.  Most of these families are housed with nothing, and that’s why they need you. Your help ensures that on move in day, all those women, men, and children have the things they need to make a house a home.

How do you take a shower without a shower curtain? Open food from the food pantry without a can opener? Tuck your child in at night without sheets or a mattress? These families have overcome so much and deserve to be met with dignity and respect on move-in day, so it can be a day of celebration. You can help these families settle into their new housing and stay permanently housed by providing the funds needed to ensure each mom, dad, and child has all the household goods they need to make a house a home.

Your investment in supporting our 2021 Charity Ball Together We Can Campaign will make a tangible difference in the lives of hundreds of men, women, and children in our community. Together, we can provide “more than a roof”.
