Community Partner Spotlight on Catholic Charities of Central Texas
Our 2015 Family Grant winner, Catholic Charities of Central Texas, works to strengthen families by meeting the needs of the most vulnerable members of our community. Its Immigration Legal Services program provides legal assistance at minimal cost to individuals and families eligible to apply for immigration benefits, with a focus on family reunification.
Impact Austin funds are providing an additional staff member to help 150 more clients and allows for the expansion of service hours from three to four weeks per month. The grant also provides technology equipment to increase efficiency and eliminate paper files.
With the support from Impact Austin, Catholic Charities is expanding its reach by presenting workshops in surrounding counties where low-cost immigration services are not available.
"We are pleased to report that we have not had to turn away a single family...due to the increase of capacity made possible by additional staff." - Catholic Charities of Central Texas Fall 2015 Newsletter
