"Partnering For Change"
2015 was a year of gearing up for big changes in how services will be delivered for the most vulnerable in our community. While we continue to serve over 50,000 people each year, it has become more important than ever to look at whether our programs are still relevant and provided in ways that maximize available funding and resources.
Our theme is "Partnering for Change" as we work on new collaborations locally and across New York State. By coming together in new ways with other groups, we can bring the best of each entity to bear in serving people most in need. The positive energies of many make our services possible.
It is with profound gratitude that we recognize our Diocesan Leadership, Board of Directors, dedicated staff and volunteers, donors and supporters: you mkae it all possible. Finally we thank those who we are honored and privileged to serve and walk with on their individual journeys of change.

"You Can Change a Life" 80th Anniversary Appeal
Catholic Charities invites you to take part by donating your time, your skills, or by making a monetary donation to help others in need.
Catholic Charities of Broome County has been providing services in our community for the past 80 years. You can help us to assist people who find themselves in difficult, sometimes even tragic situations. With your help, they find hope and get the chance to transform their lives.
Please consider making a donation to support us in our Annual Appeal. Through your generosity, we can continue to care for the lost and forgotten men, women and children of our community, often those who are victims of heartbreaking circumstances. Your contribution will make a difference in the life of a person that needs us.
Support Catholic Charities, and help dedicate this day to positive social change!
