Please see this article about service changes that recently occurred for the to the Catholic Charities Goldsboro Office.
Catholic Charities understands the importance of an individual becoming “whole” both emotionally, spiritually and physically when going through life’s transitions and challenges. We are in the process of hiring a clinical counselor for this office to assist individuals through their challenging times.
Immediately following Hurricane Matthew, Catholic Charities staff and volunteers began providing assistance to survivors in the Newton Grove Deanery. Over the past 15 months, over 130 families were assisted through the Goldsboro office. At this time, services for Hurricane Matthew survivors from the Goldsboro office are being ended due to budgetary limitations.
Families still seeking assistance in the area should contact Lutheran Services of the Carolinas who are continuing to provide case management assistance.

Volunteers play a very important role in the services that Catholic Charities provide. Volunteers work with poor and vulnerable families of all faith traditions, and quite a few only Speak Spanish.
Throughout our 5 regions we have volunteers working in the following capacities: filing, reception, working in the food pantry (stocking shelves with food, organizing and implementing logistics for food donations and distribution), entering data, and organizing donated clothes.
Volunteers can also be trained to assist with our Family Support Services program. Some responsibilities include: conducting screening interviews to identify clients’ needs, assisting in the ESL or GED classes, assisting with resume writing, and working in the childcare area.
To find out how you can volunteer, please contact the Goldsboro Office at 910-947-0802.
