A message from Marlene…
We recently issued our 2020 Annual Report, and I must say, it was a pleasure to write! There was so much to celebrate with those we serve and have served as we came together during this past year.
Together, we answered the challenges of COVID-19, thanks to your support and the energy of our staff-heroes who continued to serve our clients in addition to setting up new safety and health protocols, while ensuring they, themselves, and their own families remained safe and healthy.
As previously shared, Catholic Charities Community Services (CCCS) and Catholic Family Center (CFC) will serve together as one combined entity, effective January 1. We will continue to deliver our services to those who need us the most, and are continuing our plans to improve and expand our ability to offer effective treatment options - for example:
- We celebrated the re-opening of Jones House, one of our community residences for men in recovery, with a virtual ribbon cutting and created a housewarming registry for those who would like to celebrate with us!
- We recently broke ground on a new and expanded community residence for women in recovery which will also accommodate women with small children, Barrington House.
- We have integrated our Restart Outpatient clinic and our Mental Health Clinic; our new reception area is brighter, and truly redefines welcome.
This summer, we celebrate every opportunity we have to come together to work on this sacred mission and look forward to all that is to come.
Thank you for all you do to help our clients walk their journeys with hope.
