Raising Awareness


  

The Women's Board has a strong presence with a strong message.

 

With the mission to enlighten and educate the community on Catholic Charities Lake County programs and services, the Women's Board has made a powerful impact since 1989.

Below are two examples of life-changing programs we offer to those who seek help in Lake County.

Lake County Diaper Depot


The Lake County Diaper Depot supports the mission of Catholic Charities by supplementing the supply of clean, disposable diapers for families in need. By collecting diapers and distributing them to these families, we help mothers avoid making difficult decisions such as cutting back on basic essentials like food, utilities or child care to afford clean diapers. Diaper Depot provides diapers to Catholic Charities programs and also partners with external nonprofit organizations, including the P.A.G.E.S. program of the Lake County Health Department, Arden Shore, PADS Family Center, Open Arms Mission, St. Mary of the Annunciation Parish (Mundelein), St. Mary of Vernon (Indian Creek), One Hope United, and Special Education District of Lake County (SEDOL).

To support the Diaper Depot, please contact Lake County Regional Project Manager Kelsey Weeks at 847-782-4117 or keweeks@catholiccharities.net.

Lake County Meals on Wheels


Through the Meals on Wheels program, volunteers deliver nutritious, well-balanced meals to homebound seniors age 60 and older who are unable to shop and prepare their own meals. Seniors look forward to the daily visits from our friendly volunteers who also keep a watchful eye on the senior's well-being. Those recuperating from surgery or other medical issues greatly appreciate the nutritious food and companionship to help speed their healing.
