There has never been a time in our organization’s history when our service has been more in need. In order to do more good for more people, and with the support of the Diocese of Rochester and encouragement from government funders to streamline our work, our boards have approved an integration of Catholic Charities of Steuben County and Catholic Charities of Livingston County effective October 1, 2020. Our new combined organization will be called Catholic Charities Steuben/Livingston.
The uniting of our agencies will help us achieve our mission of providing critical services to families, working to reduce poverty and food insecurity, and advocating for social justice through our services. There will be no change to the services we offer or how they are delivered. Please click here to see our full announcement along with a very important FAQ document that will provide you with more detail on this exciting change.
