  Do You Need Rent, SNAP or Utility Assistance?

Every 30 seconds someone finds hope at our 170 locations throughout Cook and Lake counties.

Hope is found at our new Father Augustus Tolton Peace Center where people whose lives were once destroyed by violence turn to us for counseling, housing and job support. Hope is found by the veterans working with a Catholic Charities mental health or job counselor to help them rebuild their life. Hope is found at our Pope Francis ministries where shower and laundry facilities help the homeless regain their dignity. Hope is found in the homes of ailing seniors who receive at-home support that allows them to remain independent. Hope is found at our many supper programs where families know they can count on us for a hot meal.
