Disaster Preparation & Recovery

Catholic Charities works with the North Carolina Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (North Carolina VOAD), Long Term Recovery Groups (LTRG), The Salvation Army and the North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) to address client unmet needs following disasters.  Services are currently focused on assisting families who were impacted by Hurricane Matthew.

In response to Hurricane Matthew, Catholic Charities is working closely with Lutheran Services Of The Carolinas (LSC), the local Long Term Recovery Groups (LTRG), and the City of Greenville to assist families.   Our case workers provide families with rental and utility assistance and other support to help them back to their “new” way of life.  When needed, we will provide families with a referral to other organization in the community to receive assistance.

Families still recovering from Hurricane Matthew are encouraged to call (919) 861 – 2886 to set up an appointment to speak with a disaster case manager from Lutheran Services Of The Carolinas.  The help line has a live operator Monday – Friday 9 am – 5 pm and a 24/7 voicemail.

Food Pantries

We provide healthy foods and nutritional awareness to our communities.  Individuals and families can access our food pantry once every 30 days and will be provided referrals to other community food banks.  Families seeking assistance with food will also be screened for other needs which Catholic Charities can either address, or make a referral to a community partner.

Immigration

We are able to assist in the completion and submission of various legal documents including: Applications for Citizenship, Naturalization, and Family Unification. Our professional staff also provide informational sessions to parish and community groups on immigration rights, responsibilities, and current immigration issues and resources.

Please be advised, our staff are not able to represent families during legal proceedings. All cases related to deportation or a removal situation are referred to the NC Justice Center.

Please contact Rafael Lopez, DOJ Accredited Representative, by email

Support of the Family

We offer client centered services to meet the client where they are to either enhance resume, interview, and job search skills, and or to teach financial literacy/ budgeting. Services are available via referral or by appointment.

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 Greenville Office at 252-355-5111.
