What We Do
Catholic Community Services helps those in greatest need, regardless of religion, race, ethnic status, age, disability or lifestyle. We do this by:
- Providing direct assistance to those who need help right now
- Strengthening the capacity of individuals and families to support themselves
- Engaging the wider community in providing help and creating opportunity
The community problem we address is poverty: too many Lane County families struggle to meet their most basic needs (Click here for an overview of the problem of poverty in Lane County).
Our response to the challenge of poverty is practical and creative. We help people do the best they can with the resources that are available to them right now. Even in a down economy, people in poverty can take positive steps to meet their immediate needs and build a better future for themselves and their families.
