Expanding the Services of Catholic Charities $800,000
To follow the example of Jesus, we must serve the communities and neighbors that need our help the most. Our strategic priority is to collaborate with parishes to identify those in each community facing hardship and respond with the appropriate services that are lacking.
Catholic Charities of Southwest Louisiana plans to enhance its Diocesan Social Ministry Program to offer education on the services that are available in order to connect the right services to those who qualify.
The immediate plan is to:
- Remodel warehouses to increase storage capacity for disaster relief services and outreach
- Purchase new refrigeration equipment to increase cold storage capacity
- Upgrade vehicles to use as mobile food banks to better serve parishes
- Create an endowment to help sustain operations and increase staff
Catholic Charities works hand in hand with parishes to serve the poor and evangelize by sharing the good news of the gospels.
