Catholic Charities Financial Status

The State of Illinois has not paid Catholic Charities since June of 2015 for work done for them. They currently owe Catholic Charities $30 million dollars in total. That debt is growing by $2 million dollars per month, a loss Catholic Charities cannot sustain much longer.

People are unaware for the most part that the state outsources social services in Illinois. Catholic Charities does the work for the state and bills the state at a rate they have established and agreed to pay. During this entire time, Catholic Charities has continued to serve those in need, providing them with services; housing, food, clothing, counseling, addiction services, the list goes on 150 programs deep Even though Catholic Charities’ has continued to provide services, Catholic Charities is not getting paid for that work. Since the work and caring have continued, the vast majority of people in our state are unaware that social services are even being effected with this budget impasse. With Lutheran Social Services closing half of their programs and letting go of half of their staff, some attention is now being paid to the situation. We need people to notice and to help, or the 1,000,000 people we serve annually will be without the basic needs they so rightly deserve as children of God.

The help Catholic Charities deeply needs at this moment in time is advocacy. Please write your representatives in Springfield to encourage them to release funds owed to Catholic Charities to care for those marginalized in our society.
