Deacon Tim Donohue of Holy Name Parish in West Roxbury recently wrote a piece for The Boston Pilot about the current state at the US-Mexico border for those seeking asylum. In his piece, he shares insights from his own experience working at the border, and that of Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, and Marjean Perhot, the director of Refugee and Immigration Services here at Catholic Charities of Boston.
At Catholic Charities of Boston, we function as a safety net for those most in need in our communities, providing a broad spectrum of services so people have access to life’s basic necessities. Basic needs are the most basic goods and services necessary for a minimum standard of living.

Our Vehicle Donation Program makes it easy to donate a car, truck, RV or boat that you are no longer using, and we use the proceeds from the sale to support our 70+ programs and services that help the most vulnerable in our communities.

Catholic Charities of Boston is proud to operate five temporary and permanent residential shelters in Eastern Massachusetts, dedicated primarily to women and children. Our shelters in Dorchester, Lowell, Newton Roxbury and Somerville serve almost 50 families and 130 people, and act as safe havens for young pregnant women, young mothers, women suffering from substance addition, those fleeing abusive situations, and homeless women.
All of our shelters are staffed by trained women and men who help guide each resident through their path to self-sufficiency and independent living.
