Donation Options

Catholic Charities responds to the needs of people living in poverty throughout the Diocese of Gary. Last year, we helped more than 10,000 individuals and families from Lake, Porter, LaPorte and Starke counties. Our services included household stabilization (through payment of past-due rent or utilities) permanent supportive housing for people with diagnosed mental illness who also are at high risk of becoming homeless, and supplying nutritious food through our Food Pantry. We couldn’t do this without you and all the other generous donors who make this ministry possible.

Using the buttons at the right, you may make a one-time donation or set up a recurring contribution. You may use your credit card or have the payment come through your PayPal account. If you need help setting up your gift, please call: 219-886-3549 and ask for Jackie or Fr. Mark.
