Woodhaven, NY — City Council Member Eric A. Ulrich (R-Queens), New York State Assembly Member Mike Miller, and Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens (CCBQ) announced the creation of a special relief fund to aid those families impacted from Thursday night’s fire in Woodhaven, Queens which damaged or destroyed eight homes and misplaced over 60 individuals.



"Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens joins with the Archdiocese of New York in mourning the passing of Edward Cardinal Egan. We offer our wish of condolences to Cardinal Dolan, the priests and religious of the Archdiocese and to the people of the Archdiocese. Cardinal Egan was a friend of Catholic Charities and a strong advocate for the needs of the less fortunate in the City of New York."


With the dreadful cold weather New York City has been experiencing, many seniors have spent countless days indoors and alone. Sometimes, their only visit is from our Catholic Charities Home Delivered Meals drivers. These drivers not only continue delivering the meals despite severe weather, they visit with the seniors and make sure the seniors are safe and comfortable.


The Catholic Charities Latino S.T.E.P. Up Program (Success through Education Program) hosted its first ever Math Battle competition. There were 35 participants, ranging from grades 3 through 11, which included youth from the program, along with children from the Astoria area. This problem-solving competition served as an innovative way for students to learn and practice math, and develop critical listening skills. Each student received a set of math questions with only 30 seconds to answer each problem.
