Catholic charities have stepped up their charitable giving to the people they help, as the United States Catholic Conference for the Homeless (USCCHF) announced that they would be giving $1.2 million to the Catholic Charities Emergency Fund.
The USCCHF has been collecting donations for more than 10 years, as it works with local and national charities to help the needy.
Since 2009, it has donated nearly $2.4 million, according to the group.
The emergency fund was set up by President Donald Trump in an attempt to help those who have been homeless and at risk of losing their homes.
The money will help local charities that have lost or are at risk for losing their properties.
The federal government also funds the USCCF to provide food, medical and shelter services to homeless and low-income people in need.
The Catholic Charies Emergency Fund is part of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Housing and Homelessness Services and is funded through a federal grant program known as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).
“We are extremely proud to be supporting a program that has been a crucial partner in helping people and families recover from this devastating crisis,” said the USHCF President, Dr. Peter Wojciechowski.
“We are grateful for the extraordinary efforts of the Catholic charities who have stepped forward to support this important work.
We will continue to support their mission and to provide assistance to vulnerable communities and families.”
In addition to helping the homeless, the USCCHF provides free meals, medical care, and transportation to those in need through a partnership with local agencies.
The funds were made available to help homeless families, as well as to the United Nations, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Salvation Army, and many other charities.
The group will be distributing more than 30,000 meals, meals and transportation vouchers to local agencies this year, according the group’s website.
“The outpouring of support from the Catholic Church has been overwhelming,” said John McElwee, the executive director of the American Federation of Catholic Charitians.
“These funds are a testament to the incredible work of our charitable community.
The generosity of our members and allies has been remarkable.
We are thankful for their support.”
The USCCCHF’s donation to the USCDHF comes just days after the organization announced it was working with Catholic Charisms to distribute food, health care and transportation services to families in need, and to create a support system to help vulnerable people find stable housing.
The USCCHCF has also worked with the National Coalition to End Homelessness to provide homeless families with shelter, food and housing.
The coalition, which works to end homelessness, will distribute more than 100,000 vouchers for the first time, according McElWee.
In a press release, the Catholic charity said the funding was part of its commitment to support the efforts of homeless families and their families.
“For over 10 years our faith and compassion have helped hundreds of thousands of people through this crisis,” McElWEe said.
“It is with deep regret that we are making this donation to a nonprofit that has served thousands of our brothers and sisters during this crisis.”
The Salvation Army and the United Methodist Church, which has been helping homeless people for decades, also announced they were donating $1 million.
The Salvation Army is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, meaning it does not receive any government funding.
The United Methodist is the largest Protestant denomination in the United State.
In addition, the United Church of Christ, which includes many Catholic churches, is also giving $100,000.
