The year 2020 marked a particularly challenging time for the entire country in the face of COVID-19, which is why we are extremely grateful for the steadfast support of our donors and community partners.
Here at Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County, we quickly implemented new ways to provide compassionate care for the clients we serve – keeping in mind the unique needs and challenges of our clients, many of whom are victims of domestic violence, experience food insecurity, or face the day-to-day tribulations of poverty and isolation.
Thanks to your generosity, we were able to provide care and services to thousands of people in our communities. For example, the Food Pantry donated more than 242,000 pounds of food via home deliveries and drive-through pick up. Therapy services were converted to a HIPAA-compliant telehealth model. Additionally, our program staff secured quarantine housing, food, and resources for individuals re-entering society after incarceration.
We are truly grateful for the generous donations we received in 2020. You have our commitment that we will be good stewards of the funds, continue our community collaborations, and remain steadfast in providing essential services to our community population in the areas of mental health, families, children, and older adults.
