1,232,105 million minutes of hope - behavioral health

Depression and self-esteem issues became so debilitating for Scot that he rarely got out of bed the entire summer of 2010.  Although he continued to work from home, his anxiety increased. On top of that, he was having financial problems because his clients were not paying for the work he provided. He was close to becoming a total recluse and shut-in until that moment when his mother asked him to call Catholic Charities for help. 

Find out how Catholic Charities therapist, Susan Walsh, helped Scot and how he is doing today by reading his full story in our 2013 Annual Report.

Scot is one of 27,647 individuals who came to us for help in 2013...a year where 6,251,759 minutes of service (hope) were given, thanks to our volunteers and donors. 2013 Donor Roster.

 

Rarin' up for our 12th annual golf outing - june 16


Who is ready to golf?  Spring has given us a few beautiful teaser days so far, leaving golfers of all skill levels chomping at the bit to hit the course.

Well, here is something else to chomp on...a day of golf on the gorgeous and challenging course at The Wisconsin Club - Country Club.  Our annual fundraiser is scheduled for Monday, June 16 and we would love to have you join us!  We spoil you rotten during the day and night with fantastic food, prizes, fun and a few cocktails along the way.  This is such an easy way to support the 10 programs Catholic Charities provides to people of all faiths throughout southeast Wisconsin.  All of the proceeds from this annual event go directly to program support.

We are looking for sponsors, golfers and for those who don't golf...join us for our dinner auction.  All of the information about the event, as well as easy registration, sponsorship and payment options, can be found on our event page.
