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.
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.
