“We will help as many people as we can get to as long as there are resources for us to use,” said Catholic Charities president Carol Fernandez. “We’ll provide assistance with rental payments and money for food or a new refrigerator, and other basic needs.”
Fernandez said Catholic Charities helps to provide long-term assistance as long as there is a need for it.
“With a disaster, everybody has a role that they play,” she said. “Catholic Charities is generally the early responders. We’re set up to help provide basic needs and long-term support. We will work with these people to try to get them back into their homes.”
