Meeting Basic Needs

close x

Following Gospel teachings, Catholic Charities Community Services strives to ensure everyone in our community has what is necessary to live a dignified, human life: food, shelter, clothing, access to medical care and more. We seek to satisfy these needs because we believe you have a right to what is fundamental to survival and because we wish to provide a holistic foundation to help you move toward a better life.

Food Assistance

Hunger does not discriminate — it affects the elderly, working families, veterans, immigrants, the disabled and, worst of all, children. In New York State, studies found that 21.4 percent of households with children suffer from food hardship. If you find yourself relying on food pantries and community kitchens to survive, CCCS is here to help.
