  Do You Need Rent, SNAP or Utility Assistance?

COVID-19 Services/Response:

Our thanks to the remarkable staff, partners, donors, and volunteers who are helping us meet the needs of those least able to navigate these unprecedented circumstances. We are in your debt.

Service Update:

  • For urgent needs, please call 312-655-7700
  • Meals to go are available at Congregate Meal sites and Senior Centers. Catholic Charities has suspended all senior group activities and adult day care amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Our home care services continue, and are following a more sophisticated protocol as there are seniors who have no one to drop off groceries and provide basic hygiene assistance.
  • Food pantries and evening meal programs will continue to provide food depending on supplies and safe distribution protocols. Please check under Our Services/Emergency Services for locations and phone numbers.
  • Counseling, case management, and other services that can be provided remotely are being delivered accordingly. Please call your case worker or program contact if you need assistance.

How You Can Help:
Due to COVID-19 exposure risks, we are unable to take donations of clothing or food from individuals or groups at this time.  

  • Please consider a contribution. The need for financial assistance and program support for those who were only just making ends meet will grow significantly with lost wages and other impact from the pandemic.
  • When shopping on Amazon, please use Amazon Smile and choose Catholic Charities so we might benefit from your purchase. 
  • Volunteers needed to pack food at pantries.  If you are not in a high risk category and are willing to help, please email Andrew McKernin at Protective gear provided. Health protocols enforced. 
  • Thank the human service workers, first responders, and grocery/gas station/coffee vendors in your life and when you see them in action.

Senior Affordable Housing

 English    En Español
Affordable and federally-assisted buildings serve people who are 62 or older, are able to live independently and fulfill the lease requirements with or without assistance and have very low income. Residents are responsible for their own cooking, housekeeping, laundry and personal care. Most of these housing units have been constructed under the Section 202 Program of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. The majority of the residents served at the facilities receive rental assistance through government programs. Studio and one-bedroom apartments have full kitchens and private baths. These smoke-free locations have planned, informal, social and recreational activities. Features at most of the sites include 24-hour front desk monitoring, resident councils, activities, community room with kitchen, libraries, on-site laundry facilities and monthly newsletters.
