Charitable Assistance To Community's Homeless
We are blessed to have the opportunity to partner with C.A.T.C.H to reach those in need. The organization helps place people in homes and assigns a case manager to help them build a more stable life for themselves. The program has been remarkably successful and boasts an 85-90% successful graduation rate.
First Presbyterian Church supports C.A.T.C.H. through the generous donations of parishioners. We currently work with two families per six month period. Since 2006 have helped over 13 families (including 27 children) and are currently supporting a family of three. We would love to expand our mission in this area and encourage you to make a pledge to C.A.T.C.H though First Presbyterian Church.
