Catholic Charities USA Issues New Emergency Assistance Grants to Catholic Charities in Oklahoma City and Brooklyn

.- To help local Catholic Charities agencies with their recovery efforts from recent disasters in their communities, Catholic Charities USA's Office of Disaster Response has issued two new emergency assistance grants of $10,000 each to Catholic Charities in Oklahoma City and Brooklyn-Queens.

Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City will provide long-term case management services to victims of recent flooding caused by severe storms in four counties of western Oklahoma: Blaine, Caddo, Canadian, and Kingfisher.  The agency's case managers will staff the Disaster Recovery Center in all counties and will follow up with personal and telephone outreach. The agency will also work with community leaders to set up long-term recovery centers.

Catholic Charities USA, which has been commissioned by the U.S. Catholic Bishops to represent the Catholic community in times of domestic disaster, responds with emergency and long-term assistance as needed.  Its Disaster Response Office connects the Church's social service agencies and disaster planning offices across the nation.  The funding for these emergency grants comes from Catholic Charities USA's General Disaster Relief Fund.
