A Helping Hand For Those in Need

Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster strives to provide a helping hand to individuals and families struggling with homelessness, eviction, hunger, and other issues of marginalization and destitution. Last year, our anti-poverty programs assisted more than 14,000 individuals and families in need of care, hope, and help.

Office Hours:
9am – 5pm

If you are experiencing a housing emergency or crisis after the HRC office closes at 5pm, you should evaluate your situation to determine immediate housing options (Are there friends, family, or others with whom you can spend the night?). If you are unable to reach a temporary solution, call the After-Hours Hotline at 211.

The Housing Resource Center is a collaborative effort of the Orange County Department of Social Services and Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster.

Case Management

If you are struggling to keep a roof over your head or food on the table, Catholic Charities Case Management Services may be able to help. A variety of bilingual services are available, including information and referral, case management / service coordination, emergency assistance for rent, utilities, transportation, food and clothing (limited by available resources), entitlement assistance, and advocacy.

Resource Exchange

The Resource Exchange accepts donations of gently used small furniture, other household items (such as plates, dishes, pots and pans), and basic necessities of life, such as hygiene items and school supplies, and distributes them to families and individuals in need in order to improve their overall quality of life.

Each year, thanks to generous donations from community members, Catholic Charities helps thousands of individuals and families in Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties enjoy a better life by distributing these donations free of charge to those in need.

We greatly appreciate the donations of furniture, household, and other items
to help those in need enjoy a better quality of life.
There are times when we are unable to accept the generosity from community members
due to storage, staffing, and delivery capacity.

Thank you for your continued support!
