Member Spotlight — Catholic Charities of WVThey had recently arrived from New York via a Greyhound bus and didn't have anything to eat or any place to go.


Late after a Friday staff meeting – after all the neighbors at the Neighborhood Center had left – a family of six knocked on the locked front door. They had recently arrived from New York via a Greyhound bus and didn’t have anything to eat or any place to go. We were able to work with our community partners to find temporary housing for them until we could do more in-depth case management the following Monday. Additionally, thanks to our pantry we were able to provide food for them for several days. They were incredibly touched that someone would welcome strangers, find them food and shelter, and promise to continue working with them.

It is only through the generosity of donors like the United Way that we are able to provide this kind of emergency assistance to families in need.
