Emergency warming shelters
Our Outreach staff are true advocates for the client - linking them in times of crisis to needed services and programs that are available for the following needs:
- food and clothing
- medical/dental care
- material resources
- counseling services
- link to education and job opportunities
- link to available community resources
For some clients juggling multiple issues, we provide ongoing support through our Case Management Services. The outreach case manager works with clients to identify issues, problem solve, and together create a plan to address long term needs and transform lives. As an advocate for the client, the case manager will help the client obtain available community resources.
The goal of case management services is to work with clients to help them attain a greater degree of self-sufficiency and overall improvement in their lives. While there are no charges to clients for Outreach and Case Management Services, the program readily accepts donations.
Spanish speaking Outreach staff are available at all of our primary sites. To schedule an appointment with one of our Outreach Case Managers, please call the primary contact number in your area:

Josephina’s husband died several years ago in a traffic accident leaving her to raise their five children on her own. When she was in need of support and resources, she turned to Catholic Charities. Our bilingual Case Manager has been working with her over the past year to connect her with resources for clothing, food, help with translating at medical appointments, as well as meeting with school and other community agencies. Josephina often felt overwhelmed about her husband’s death and raising her family on her own, but she knew that our Case Manager was there to help her and provide support. Josephina and her family are now living with more stability and are hopeful for the future!
