Giving Thanks For Positive Impacts
11/01/2012 by Monsignor Michael M. Boland

“Positive Impacts” is the professional term we use at Catholic Charities for “making a difference in people’s lives.”

It is a term used by professional social workers and support staff because it describes the “outcomes” or results of the services that we offer to people in need of our assistance. Perhaps our most visible service is feeding hungry families and individuals in communities throughout Cook and Lake Counties. But as a social service agency, we also help our neighbors to solve their problems, repair relationships, retrieve their dignity, achieve employment and stability, and accomplish the goals they set for themselves and their families.
