Help & Hope Breakfast

The Help & Hope Breakfast is our signature annual fundraising event, which usually takes place during the Christmas season at the Marriott Hartford Downtown.

Our next Help & Hope fundraiser will be a virtual event, held from November 27 to December 9, 2020, called Help & Hope at Home.

Help & Hope at Home will be 100% virtual, with an online fundraising auction to take place over a period of two weeks as the holiday season gets underway.

We will post engaging Help & Hope content on our website and social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube) throughout this two-week period, including public expression of gratitude toward our generous Sponsors.

Now more than ever, the individuals, families, and communities we serve are in need of your support.

Since the pandemic began, we have seen a significant increase in the number of households reaching out to us for emergency assistance – food, diapers, rental or utilities assistance – and we continue to make a difference by providing affordable and accredited preschool for working families, mental health and substance abuse counseling, 24/7 care for adults with developmental disabilities, and more.

Check out our 2019 Help & Hope Breakfast Video! We were so proud and grateful to share the story of this family and how Catholic Charities was able to provide help, create hope, and make a difference in their lives.
