Would you recommend Catholic Charities of Oregon?

by Leslie W. (August 12, 2013)
I already do. I am a volunteer at FISH Food Emergency. My job is to refer people to different organizations when we cannot serve them ourselve. People always call in for help with utility assistance, those that are near homelessness, etc. I always recommend Catholic Charities. I realize funds are low for utility assistance but on the chance that you can I always give these people your number. I am Catholic and would love to volunteer for you as well.
