“To live charitably means not looking out for our own interests, but carrying the burdens of the weakest and poorest among us.” —Pope Francis
At Catholic Charities we work to continue the mission of Jesus Christ by responding to critical needs within our local communities. Summit County’s Partners in Giving campaign hopes to answer those needs. This year we’ve set a goal of $75,000, which will help fund three of our local services: Behavioral Health & Recovery, Camp Christopher and Basic Needs.
Behavioral Health & Recovery
Meet Tom, a Catholic Charities employee, who shares his journey from addiction to recovery coach.
Every person, no matter their social standing, has been created in the image and likeness of God and is worthy of respect. This value guides our staff at St. John the Baptist Recovery Outreach Center as they help clients from local communities begin their pathway into recovery.
“Catholic Charities gave me back my hope in humanity. It taught me that there are people who genuinely care. That it isn't about the dollar. That we, as human beings, matter.” —Trish, a recovery coach at St. John the Baptist Recovery Outreach Center.
Recovery Services provide a unique, self-directed approach to substance use treatment with the guidance of peer recovery coaches.
“At camp you get out of your comfort zone, and you experience new things with people you don't know. You make long-lasting friends.” —Cody, a first-year counselor who attended Camp Christopher every summer for 10 years.
Camp Christopher is a safe place for kids to experience intentional spiritual development while growing in nature, community and spirit.
