Partner of the Month
Catholic Charities Diocese of Raleigh
September will, for many years, be the month we remember Hurricane Florence. Here at the Harrelson Center, we remember how Catholic Charities swiftly rose to meet the need for rescue, recovery and restoration.
Indeed, CC is still working with families who are in recovery from Hurricanes Matthew and Florence. While Hurricane Matthew funding is no more, they continue to support a few families through their case management services. Their case load for Florence recovery however, remains very active and covers six counties.
To aid in that effort, NC Catholic Volunteers is coordinating four repair events with WARM. Volunteers who can paint, use a hammer, possibly put up drywall or put down flooring are needed. Visit here to lean more and sign up.
Our CC friends will also be on hand at the Brunswick County Disaster Expo on Sept 11, at the Brunswick Senior Center in Supply.
On Sept 7, CC will host all 8 offices of Catholic Charities Diocese of Raleigh. "This is the first time we will all meet in person in years!" Emilie said. "This gives us an opportunity to connect, discuss best practices and just catch up!" We look forward to welcoming all!
"The Harrelson Center really provides a unique opportunity to serve people holistically. If I'm not the expert in one area, I know already that somebody is within the Harrelson Center. It's an amazing way to provide a warm handoff so that people have all of their needs served."
- Emilie Hart, Regional Director for the Cape Fear Chapter of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Raleigh
