Raleigh Catholic Charities Receives National Recognition for Local Grant Program

Raleigh Catholic Charities receives national recognition for The Raleigh Faith Community Support Circle Program for Homeless Families, which originated as a way to help people relocating to the Triangle after Hurricane Katrina.  The program has evolved through a partnership with Lutheran Family Services and has been selected for the 2009 Arnold Andrews Award for Collaborative Excellence presented by Ministering Together, a national organization that encourages dioceses, parishes and ministries of the Catholic Church to partner in providing health, education, pastoral and social services.  Local support has been provided by the City of Raleigh, Wake County, the John Rex Endowment and the A.J. Fletcher Foundation.
