With a variety of multicultural and multilingual services, Catholic Charities has been able to offer support to families during the long process of adjusting to their new surrounding and becoming active participants in their communities. In addition to resettlement, our work in this area has included immigration services, employment services, English as a Second Language classes, and various programs that bring communities together to celebrate their unique cultural traditions. We are proud to support migrants, immigrants, and refugees in our communities.
Disaster Relief Services
Following the disaster of Hurricane Maria in September 2017, Catholic Charities was among the local nonprofit agencies that organized to assist thousands of families from Puerto Rico who chose Connecticut to be one of their places of refuge. Employees across our agency offered support and necessary social services, including food, clothing, employment search assistance, transportation, and school enrollment. In March 2018, Catholic Charities assumed the lead role in coordinating continuance of case management and supportive services.
