If you are an immigrant living in New York City, whether you are documented

or undocumented, if you are struggling to meet your daily basic needs, such as paying your bills, providing food for your family, or even healthcare, Catholic Charities is one of organization that you should know. Sadly, a lot of people in our community have no idea about this organization, perhaps rightly or wrongly, perceiving that they only cater to Catholics. That is definitely a wrong perception.

Catholic Charities provide a myriad of services such as Protecting families, feeding the hungry and homeless, welcoming and helping integrate immigrants and refugees, and also financial assistance. They also provide job training as well as legal services to anyone who qualifies.
