The organization is the main charitable arm of the Diocese of Beaumont and helps all in need, Catholic or not,. It has programs in counseling, relief services and hospitality among others.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way many were helped after both major hurricanes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find funding to offer more services for the elderly.

I am a past member of the board of Catholic Charities and always felt it was a most enjoyable and worthwhile volunteer experience and one I feel blessed to have been priviledged to do. There are, of course, a number of very good programs that help people in need be it financial,
emotional or providing knowledge, understanding or information. The attitude that I believe is one of the best assets of the organization is the focus by the board and staff in analyzing how they address their mission and what improvements and additions they might make to better serve the needs of southeast Texans. The advent of the two major hurricanes (Rita and Ike) that so impacted the region saw an expanded role for the agency - that of helping hurricane victims . They saw the need for more help and training for their own staff, found it and then built on that for post-hurricane service. For example, when
gift cards were being handed out a program in financial management
was established. It was so welcomed that it has been expanded beyond just hurricane victims but has broadened to help others who may not need direct financial aid but improved skills in asset management including establising and maintaining good credit.
Catholic Charities of SE Texas has grown and changed for the good of many of those served. I am proud to have been even a very small parat of that agency.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My work on the Board and its committees and in attending its fund raisers in the community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the educational services especially those that would improve the future of its present clients (and those who will come later),
