Our Mission is…
Help people in need, especially children and families at risk, and to advocate for social justice, in fulfillment of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Rochester’s mission to build a just and compassionate society rooted in the dignity of all people.
Just like you, we are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) in our community and how it may impact all of us. Of primary importance to us is caring for the people we serve in a healthy and safe way. We have been working closely with our state agencies, staff, and other community leaders to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients and staff to minimize the spread of the virus.
We are reviewing all agency services and prioritizing essentials. We are sorting out ways to allow our staff to work productively from home if possible. We are reducing public access hours, and minimizing in-person meetings in-house and off-site. We are increasing utilization of electronic communication, and initiating new online systems, and we are following governmental directives, responding proactively to our clients and funders as needed.
We continue to be people of good service and are creatively sorting out ways to do our business in new ways. We remain grateful for the way our team members have responded calmly and efficiently in this time of challenge, and we thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we navigate all of this.
