  • Catholic Charities NH serves individuals and families in need across New Hampshire. Everyone comes to us with a different story, but share common themes: they are living in crisis, overwhelmed, stuck in life, unable to develop a path forward – and often have nowhere else to turn. Examples are families struggling to get by on a daily basis, individuals who cannot afford many of life’s basic needs, mothers and babies on the brink of homelessness, seniors facing isolation, veterans held back by traumatic experiences or someone overcome by mental health challenges.

    Regardless of the stage of their struggle, our programs are designed to address the immediate and root causes of the challenges NH residents face, working with them to uncover and create opportunities to develop a more successful path forward.

  • The NHCA replaces the spring parish appeal that Catholic Charities NH conducted in parishes across the state for more than 75 years. Starting in 2023, all parishes across the state will participate in the NHCA. Catholic Charities NH will receive a percentage of the proceeds generated through that appeal. Catholic Charities NH will continue to fundraise like we’ve always done through a number of fundraising revenue sources such as grants, direct mail, website, events, corporate sponsorships, legacy gifts, and various online fundraising activities.

  • Catholic Charities is not being fully funded by the NHCA. That would be an incredible feat! The NHCA intends to distribute proceeds to each of the special collections that have been combined into one appeal now known as the NHCA. The proceeds Catholic Charities will receive from the NHCA will never be more than what it normally would have raised during its spring parish appeal. We will continue to fundraise as we’ve always done through a number of fundraising revenue sources such as grants, direct mail, website, events, corporate sponsorships, legacy gifts, and various online fundraising activities.
