Helping Hand Fund

Your gift counts twice

Many caregivers choose to support the Helping Hand Fund at their local ministry. The Helping Hand program is administered by Catholic Charities and provides confidential, one-time financial and other resources to eligible caregivers who are experiencing a financial crisis or need temporary assistance.

This year we are thrilled to welcome back the Providence Federal Credit Union as the leader of our matching challenge. The first $50,000 raised for the Helping Hand Fund will be matched dollar for dollar. That means your gift counts twice!

In 2016, the fund provided about $200,000 in financial assistance to 220 caregivers. Unforeseen illness and housing were among the most pressing needs last year.
