Profiles of hope. Profiles of courage. Profiles of charity.

For 101 years, the stories of struggle that make up The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund’s annual campaign have inspired readers to help New Yorkers in dire financial need.  This latest 2012-2013 campaign spurred $7.3 million in donations – up from $7 million the previous year -- divided between Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New York and six other multiservice agencies serving New Yorkers in need.

These profiles illustrate Catholic Charities' service to growing need in our community, and also highlight strong partnerships with our affiliated agencies.  Seven of the 18 Catholic Charities stories featured services received at Catholic Charities affiliated agencies including Catholic Big Sisters Big Brothers, Covenant House New York, CREATE, Dominican Sisters, Elinor Martin Residence for Mother and Child and Grace Institute.

Day in and year out, Catholic Charities helps solve the problems of New Yorkers in need – non-Catholics and Catholics alike.

We invite you to read their stories.
