“Catholics Help” is a new Emergency Relief Fund created by Catholics for America to practice spiritual and corporal works of mercy and to identify unmet and immediate needs of people affected by Hurricane Harvey and future emergencies. This fund is new and needs immediate donors. Send emergency donations BELOW.

How we will do this:

  1. We coordinate with our network of 50,000 Catholics for America followers/members, 22,000 Católicos por América followers and others on the ground in affected areas
  2. We determine the unmet needs with those on the ground
  3. We solicit donations
  4. We send donated monies to followers/members on the ground who can distribute the donations (if there is money in the fund)

Hurricane Harvey: We have made contact with an individual on the ground in Houston who is a Knight of Malta, a Knight of Columbus, a member of Catholics for America and founder of Catholics for Texas whose own home was flooded. He has identified funding needs for others for dehumidifiers, infrared moisture detectors, carpet removal, etc. These needs are immensely important because if mold is not stopped in a home that was flooded then a family’s home could be torn down with the family still owing the mortgage.

UPDATE:  We have sent fans and ozone generators thanks to several donors!
