Faith in Action: Lifting Our Brothers and Sisters in Need Through Community Services

Catholic Charities New Hampshire (CCNH) is blessed to be a part of the New Hampshire Catholic Appeal (NHCA), currently underway across the Diocese. In addition to supporting a number of ministries important to the Diocese, gifts to the NHCA help support our Community Services program, one of our 10 core social services programs.

In case you are not familiar, CCNH Community Services embodies Christ's call to serve the least among us — those lost, in crisis, often with nowhere else to turn. They are individuals lacking sufficient income to make ends meet, families without adequate access to basic necessities and seniors unable to get by alone. For them, every day is a struggle.

They are those like Kay, grappling with her mother's recent death while her husband, Tom, battles end-stage renal disease. The emotional pain is compounded by the mounting expenses that have pushed their fixed budget to the breaking point, leaving them unable to pay their electric and heating bills.

Our Community Services team helped ease the burden with assistance, so she and Tom didn’t have to face a night in the dark, risk spoiling their limited supply of food or shiver at night. We also connected her to our bereavement support group to help her cope with the loss of her mom.

Knowing now that she is not alone, Kay is very thankful to have Community Services in her corner. As she shared, “You took the time to listen to me and were so caring and helpful.”

Your support of the NHCA makes transformative stories like Kay's possible. It demonstrates the power of our faith in action, lifting our brothers and sisters from despair and accompanying them to a brighter future.

Together, we can continue to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, extending His healing, comfort and empowerment to those who need it most.

"Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Mt 25:40
