ASSISTANCE FOR FLOOD VICTIMS

Our prayers go out to all those who have been affected by flooding from the recent storms, both locally and across the state.

Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas is preparing to assist with critical needs in the counties of the Diocese of Beaumont affected by floodwaters, in collaboration with county operations and other non-profit agencies.  We will be able to provide limited financial assistance in the form of gift cards, vouchers and, in some cases, utility pledges.

Clients will be required to show proof of residence in the affected areas and/or be referred directly by a county official or non-profit partner.  We are arranging outreach visits where we will provide this assistance at locations in Jasper, Liberty, Newton, and Tyler Counties beginning the week of June 1st.  While the dates are not yet scheduled, we are accepting referrals and direct calls from potential clients.  Clients should call our office to request an appointment.

The contact for Catholic Charities is the Disaster Response Coordinator, Tara Byars – 409-924-4426 or tbyars@catholiccharitiesbmt.org

The following nine counties are in our service territory: Chambers, Hardin, Jasper, Jefferson, Liberty, Newton, Orange, Polk, and Tyler, and we will be monitoring changing needs across the entire service area, adjusting as needed.

Religious Liberty & Service to All

Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas is pleased to reflect the moral values of the Catholic Church in its services. Yet, in keeping with Catholic social principles, Catholic Charities shows no preference for any particular religion when serving those in need.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has expressed grave reservations about threats to religious liberty emerging in America that could compromise the value-based services of institutions like Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas.

We invite you to take a few minutes to review the bishops' concerns regarding religious freedom and lend your voice of support and your prayers to the chorus of those asking God and national leaders to help our nation remain faithful to its heritage. Thank you!
