Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Catholic Charities USA has distributed millions of dollars in emergency funds to Catholic Charities agencies serving communities affected by recent storms in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This initial response phase has focused on immediate needs, including the most basic essentials like food, water and shelter. As the work of long-term recovery begins following the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, Catholic Charities is now preparing to help with resettling and assisting people.

Through the hard work, compassion, and service of hundreds of Catholic Charities staff and volunteers, hundreds of thousands of disaster survivors have received care. Our work will continue in the months and years ahead, sensitive to the particular needs of the communities we serve.

If you still wish to make a donation, please call 1(800) 919-9338 or click here.

Thank you for your continued support. Please know you remain in our prayers with profound gratitude,

Sister Donna Markham OP, PhD
President of Catholic Charities USA
