Charities Royale Casino Night Raises Funds to Support


Catholic Charities Emergency Assistance Department provides basic human needs. Food is the most requested basic need. Other services include emergency financial assistance, benefits screening, clothing, emergency shelter, short-term case management, advocacy, and referrals.

Illinois unemployment rate is currently among the highest in the nation. The majority of jobs that pay family-supporting wages now require some amount of post secondary education, training, or certification. This creates a significant obstacle for our clients who have less education or work experience.

Last year, the Emergency Assistance Department served 2.2 million meals through our nine food pantries and screened nearly 1,500 people for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The department also received 100,316 requests for rent and utility assistance. Without the assistance provided by Catholic Charities, some of the most vulnerable people in our area would have nowhere else to turn for basic human needs.

Your contribution gives people in need — people who live and work in your community — help and hope.
