About Our Organization
Catholic Charities provides mental health services and financial assistance to individuals, children, couples and families. We work to empower them and provide hope, thereby strengthening our communities.
Catholic Charities will dedicate 2019 Siouxland Big Give gifts to help individuals and families in crisis situations. These crises often result in a lack of food, difficulties paying the rent or electricity bill, inability to pay for needed medication, or other basic needs not being met. Catholic Charities offers financial support for such crises when funds are available and will always connect people to additional community resource partners at their times of need.
Gifts received from Siouxland Give in 2018 were directed to the Pathways to Hope & Healing which provides FREE mental health assessments to any school-age child. Children can be identified by school personnel or a parent as kids who are at-risk or just beginning to struggle. The goal ofthe program is to intervene early before serious problems develop. A licensed mental health counselor meets with the child and parent, assesses what is going on, and then makes recommendations.
Thanks in part to Siouxland Give, Catholic Charities served 321 children, 20% under the age of 10, during the 2018-19 fiscal year. The most common diagnois for which children were treated were anxiety and PTSD.
Together, we made a difference in the lives of kids and families in our community!
