Do you have an urgent need requiring emergency assistance? We can help. The best way to connect with our staff is by calling our Central Intake office at (716) 856-4494. Residents outside of Erie County (Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming counties), should call your local Catholic Charities office. Most assistance can be completed remotely, and alternate locations may be available if needed.
Emergency assistance is provided on a case-by-case basis; there is no one size fits all. Things we can help with include emergency food, SNAP enrollment, utilities (Neighbor-for-Neighbor Heat Fund, and Care and Share), personal care toiletries, clothing, household items, baby items, prescription medication, information and advocacy, and other assistance.
