Catholic Charities is the most comprehensive human service provider in the region, serving people of all ages, races, faiths, and walks of life. The many services benefiting from the Appeal include emergency assistance, counseling and mental health services, specialized services for families and the elderly, and job readiness and education. Established in October 1923, Catholic Charities served 12,000 neighbors in need throughout Erie County during its first Appeal in 1924. The organization has since expanded into all eight counties of Western New York and impacted the lives of more than 152,000 individuals - Catholics and non-Catholics alike - last year.
