Volunteer Mentors Needed-Make a difference
Catholic Charities is kicking 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 an $80.00 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 $80. The cost of the visit with a social worker who can offer case management and referral while helping with boots is $45.
