Catholic Charities Helps Homeless Community Amid COVID-19 Surge

Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens’ Office of Mission and Community Outreach Services recently joined St. Dominic Church’s Outreach Team to distribute grab and go bags for the local homeless community in Brooklyn. We were also accompanied by members of the Knights of Columbus who helped us to distribute a hot meal (kindly provided by St. Dominic’s Church), gift cards, coats and winter supplies. Our team chatted with the community to learn more about their needs, so that we can better assist them during these trying times.

Since the pandemic began, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has provided much-needed food packages and services at 52 Catholic Charities parish-based food pantries, and in total, the agency distributed $7.5 million in food assistance. Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens continues to deliver mental health counseling, housing services, family services and early childhood education. In addition, we are pleased to offer COVID vaccines at a variety of local events and locations. A full list can be found at www.ccbq.org/liveitup.
