Please Support Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo!


“No matter the circumstances, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo will continue to provide the most basic human needs of food, clothing, and shelter to the people we serve,” says Executive Director Rodney Schuster. “While volunteer help is now limited, and food and clothing donations have greatly decreased, we continue, without pause, to serve our communities most vulnerable men, women, and children across the Diocese of Toledo during the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Helping Hands of St. Louis continues to provides food, Catholic Charities La Posada Family Emergency Shelter remains open in Toledo, and Miriam House, a transitional shelter for homeless women and children, remains open in Norwalk. Staff members are monitoring calls for assistance in Mansfield, Norwalk, Sandusky and Toledo, OH.

“All of our services are adjusting, as we strive to maintain the recommended ‘social distance’ with others, while continuing to provide love and care to everyone we encounter,” Mr. Schuster adds. “We ask for your prayers to end this pandemic and to protect our staff and the people we serve. We also ask for your financial support, since our ministries are being dramatically stretched, especially without the blessing of our many volunteers. Rest assured, Catholic Charities will continue to follow the example Jesus gave us by serving the poor and healing the sick in these challenging times.”
