Catholic Charities of Boston is proud to provide workforce development programs, including adult education classes, to hundreds of students in Eastern Massachusetts each year. Education is one of the key steps on the journey to self-sufficiency for many individuals. For 35 million adults in the U.S., English is a second language.
Due the wild fires on the West Coast, Catholic Charities of Boston’s vehicle donation program is currently in the process of evacuating the Medford, Oregon call center, which will effect wait times for those calling to donate a used vehicle. Please be assured we will continue to answer donor calls and process donations. We have Donor Support Representatives working remotely and our San Diego call center is still fully staffed and operational.
However, we are asking donors to anticipate longer hold times. Thank you for your patience as we work through this unanticipated event.
In the City of Boston and across the surrounding areas, many youth face an array of challenges, including gang violence, drugs, social issues and lack of access to basic needs.
Catholic Charities of Boston’s St. Ambrose Family Shelter in Dorchester is so much more than homeless shelter; the staff and volunteers are constantly developing new ways to support the residents who call the shelter home as well as those in need in the neighborhoods surrounding St. Ambrose.
