Need Help Coping?
Catholic Charities provides a unique opportunity for the community to receive exceptional counseling with licensed professionals at an affordable rate. This service is not always easy to find for those who may be uninsured or do not possess coverage for counseling on their insurance plan. We seek equality for all through a sliding scale fee based on income and number of dependents.
Our four counselors serve hundreds of individuals, couples and families in person each year in Evansville, Jasper and Washington, and also connect virtually with clients through teletherapy. We meet with people of all religious backgrounds and offer assistance with a wide range of personal and interpersonal challenges.
Call 812-423-5456 for an appointment at any of our three locations. Click here to visit our counseling page. You can also meet our counseling team here.

Welborn Baptist Foundation Awards Grant to Catholic Charities
Catholic Charities received a two-year, $60,000 grant from the Welborn Baptist Foundation to design and implement the Emmaus Project, an adult mentoring program.
Christian mentors will meet one-on-one with at-risk employees of local companies for 18-24 months. The goals of the project include helping at-risk employees maintain sustainable employment and enhancing the faith life of the mentors.
Handy Helpers Technicians Enjoy Success!
When M. joined us as a Handy Helper technician, his wife and six year old son lived in a shelter. He had worked sporadically but had difficulty holding a job. He did not have a high school diploma.
After six months working in our social enterprise, M just accepted a job paying over $17 per hour PLUS benefits with a local construction contractor. He took his high school equivalency exam this week and is awaiting a positive outcome. With a second child on the way, his family picture is looking up.
Imagine a world in which you can't find a job, call the street or your auto 'home' and are separated from your children. All because you lack a high school diploma, struggled with addiction or have a felony on your (long-ago) record. Handy Helpers Home Repair is a job training social enterprise designed to help individuals with past struggles regain a foothold in the labor market and create lives that work for them and their families.
Thanks to Local Companies!
Catholic Charities would like to extend our thanks to Mills Body Shop, Uebelhor Chevrolet, Heritage Federal Credit Union, All in the Family Dental, Atlas Logistics, ECS Solutions, Good Shepherd Knights of Columbus, Gibson Southern High School Football Team, and Mater Dei Students for their help!

Volunteer Mentors Needed-Make a difference
Catholic Charities kicked off its Emmaus Project on April 3, 2018! The Emmaus Project is a one-to-one adult mentoring program for at-risk employees of local businesses.
Did you know that almost 40% of new employees in manufacturing/labor industries in the Evansville area quit or lose their jobs within the first 30 days of employment?
You can help turn the tide! Mentoring is an intense volunteer activity. We are looking for twenty individuals to commit to mentoring at-risk employees (young parents, those not holding a high school diploma, or with incarceration histories) so that they keep their jobs and are able to sustain themselves and their families. Training will be held in early March.

Boots 4 Work Help People Earn
Did you know that a $100.00 pair of steel-toed boots is a common barrier to work in our Southwest Indiana? Each month many individuals in our community turn down employment because they do not have the money to buy the required footwear to start a job. Catholic Charities collaborates with local employers to ensure a person who is offered a job can go to work!
The cost of the boots is approximately $100. The cost of the visit with a social worker who can offer case management and referral while helping with boots is $45.
