I have been an intern at Catholic Charities Atlanta (CCA) for 7 months. It is the absolute best position that I have ever had and I am very thankful that I am able to be a part of such a wonderful organization. I cannot begin to describe how much of an impact CCA makes in the lives of many people in Georgia, as well as in my life. From the moment you walk into any CCA office you feel welcome and that the people from CCA truly want to help and make a difference in the lives of their clients. I have seen first hand the clients that have been assisted by CCA and how it has changed their lives for the better. CCA is, without a doubt, one of the best organizations! I will always support Catholic Charities Atlanta!

After personal devastation and financial disaster Catholic charities donated $100 to help pay my power bill. They never even asked my name or religious affiliation. They paid the power company account directly! i can personally attest to the validity & reality of help/hope offered by CC. They helped me in hard times. Now I donate to give back for the consideration & unconditional love/help given to me

After personal devastation and financial disaster Catholic charities donated $100 to help pay my power bill. i can personally attest to the validity & reality of help/hope offered by CC. They helped me in hard times.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They never even asked my name or religious affiliation. They paid the power company account directly! I give back for the consideration & unconditional love/help given to me when I needed it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Telephone contact was all that was necessary. I talked with the secretary of the bishop in charge. They never made me feel bad. They were genuinely compassionate and concerned. These people are professionals that KNOW what suffering is!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

use its established networks and venues to increase the potential benefits of $10,000,000 ten-fold - in the spirit that God intended

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
