About this grant

Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee Counties provides intervention services for individuals and families in crisis. More than 80 percent of those served are nonCatholic, and the organization serves over 150,000 meals and provides over 100,000 items to families with low or no annual income. Funding will support services at the North End Soup Kitchen to expand its hours of operation to provide a second hot meal every day. Demand for these services is expected to be very high, as families and individuals are forced to make painful choices in this difficult economy.
