The Barrington Area United Way recently awarded Catholic Charities a total of $13,000 for senior services and transitional housing in the Northwest suburbs. $6,000 will assist older adults to remain independent by providing a range of programs that address their physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing. $7,000 will support the New Hope Apartments program that moves families from homelessness into financial self-sufficiency.
“Thanks to this funding from the Barrington Area United Way, seniors will continue to enjoy valuable resources that the Catholic Charities Senior Service division provides,” said Mary Insprucker, Catholic Charities’ Northwest Regional Director. “This award will also enable the families in our New Hope Apartments program to be better served.”
