Catholic Charities News
We are pleased to share that Catholic Charities of Boston has been selected to receive a generous $55,000 grant from the Boston Resiliency Fund. Since the onset of the COVID-19 health crisis, the Boston Resiliency Fund has awarded the Agency over $150,000 in grant support to assist with ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts in the community.
This particular grant will aid our Greater Boston food pantries, including locations at the Yawkey Center in Dorchester and El Centro in the South End, that continue to see a tremendous increase in demand due to the pandemic.
For more than 100 years, Catholic Charities has continued its mission of building a just and compassionate society rooted in the dignity of all people.
At the heart of Catholic Charities of Boston is a goal of providing our community members in need with life’s basic necessities- including living assistance. Every day, our basic needs division helps individuals and families with rent, mortgage, heat and other emergency utility assistance. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, demand for our services has continued to increase as the community faces the lasting economic impacts of this health crisis.
Catholic Charities of Boston (CCAB) proudly operates five different food pantries across Eastern Massachusetts to distribute food to those in our communities who face food insecurity. Food insecurity is particularly on the rise now as we continue responding to the economic impacts of COVID-19. In fact, CCAB has distributed over 1.5 million lbs. of food just since March.
