"To love and serve our neighbors as ourselves."

Since its opening, the Martha & Mary House has helped more than 200 residents of Cambria County who’ve experienced homelessness and housing instability. At the reins of this operation is Danielle Bowers, who joined Catholic Charities as the Director of the Martha & Mary House in June.

“I get to work with wonderful people each day,” said Bowers. “I enjoy watching our houseguests grow and succeed. The self-confidence that they gain in themselves is a great joy!”

Last week, we celebrated Veterans Day to honor and thank all those who have dedicated their lives to protecting our country and keeping its people safe from harm. We thank God for their sacrifice on Veterans Day and always.

The “giving” in Thanksgiving means to give in more ways than one. It is a time to give thanks to God for the bounty of blessings He has given us: for our food, shelter, family, and everything in between. But just as importantly, it is also a time to give to others; to demonstrate our faith by loving our neighbors as ourselves and giving what we can to those in need.

In our communities, some individuals and families are thriving. This can make it easy to overlook the fact that many others are in need. Friends and neighbors—maybe some that you know from church, school, or work—are working hard every day to support their families and to make ends meet. But despite their best efforts, they’re still struggling.

Getting to Know Catholic Charities

No one can better express what we do than those who work with us and those we serve.

Here are just a few of their comments.

“Catholic Charities has had a great impact on our family. They were a lending hand when our electricity was turned off. We were very thankful to have someone to reach out to when we were facing hard times.”
