How to Help

We take monetary donations, used and new vehicles, food, furniture, medical equipment, and other items.

Throughout the year, on two consecutive nights, Catholic Social Services sponsors Homebuyer Education Workshops for First Time Homebuyers that walk you through the necessary steps to finance and purchase a property. Topics covered include:  Budgeting and Credit, Shopping for a Home, Multi-family Ownership, Home Inspection, Obtaining a Mortgage, Appraisals/Insurance, Legal Issues, Mass Housing Programs, etc. Upon Completing the two nights, you receive a certificate that allows you to access particular loans and loan rates not readily available to all buyers as well as loan programs that the state or a local municipality may offer.
