2017 Highlights of the Year

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice, Inc. served more than 82,000 people in three weeks--twice as many individuals typically assisted in one year. Catholic Charities opened 12 Disaster Response Centers in Southwest Florida to provide victims of the storm with food, water, and other necessities. Organizations, churches, civic groups, and individual donors from all over the United States responded to the need for donation of items and volunteer support. A centralized warehouse in Arcadia was established to house food, water, cleaning supplies, baby items, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and building materials and currently remains open to serve victims. Catholic Charities hired a Program Director and Caseworker for long-term disaster recovery.

Sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency earned Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice, Inc. a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. This was the 15th time that Catholic Charities has received this top distinction in the last 17 years.

Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice, Inc. operates one of the largest human trafficking victim’s assistance programs in the State of Florida. It began as a pilot program in 2009 and hundreds of victims have been freed from enslavement to become productive citizens in our communities. Catholic Charities expanded the program to include transitional housing to secure long-term help for victims that results in greater self-sufficiency.

Our Mother’s House of Catholic Charities in Venice has cared for almost 600 homeless mothers and their children with transitional housing and case management needed to become stable and independent. Five additional apartments, bringing the total to 22, were added with the opening of the William and Mary Frank Residences to young families who lack a secure home and existence.

Bethesda House of Catholic Charities in Sarasota, a drop-in community center for people living with HIV, celebrated the decision by the city commission to reopen the program's nutrition center. The center was closed for six months. After 27 years of operation, the more than 250 low-income clients had no place to receive the high-protein and fresh nutritious food needed to remain healthy. Through the generosity of the Caritas food pantry, Catholic parishes, donors, and community partners, non-perishable food and grocery store gift cards were distributed to clients until the reopening.

The New Paradigm Foundation became under the auspices of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice, Inc. The program provides affordable transitional housing in Englewood and Port Charlotte to area families who are at risk of becoming homeless through 15 available units. The program is now called New Paradigm of Catholic Charities. In addition to transitional housing, the two-year program is designed to help families develop the skills necessary to live an independent life through financial training, credit repair services, counseling, and parenting classes.

Through 11 fundraising events, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice, Inc. raised $1,061,671 or 12.2% of its revenues. These events included the Sugar Bowl Show of Shows, Catholic Charities Ball, Venetian Charity Ball, Emerald Ball, Our Mother's House Wine Tasting, Boots and Bandannas, Mardi Gras Madness, Venice Veterans Salute, Sugar Bowl Show of Shows Sarasota-Bradenton, Teach a Man to Fish Gala, and AFCAAM Charity Golf Classic.

Program Success Examples
A former resident of Our Mother's House came in to visit. Prior to beginning the program, Patty had been living with friends, staying with one or another for short periods of time. While she was enrolled in school, she was unable to attend, as she did not have a stable place to call home and she had no childcare for her daughter. Patty moved into Our Mother's House and while living there for two years she received her degree from cosmetology school and obtained a job in a local salon. Patty is now established as a hair stylist, and came back to Our Mother's House to offer free haircuts to the mothers currently in residence. It was her way of “giving back” for the services she received at Our Mother’s House.

Homeless children and families receive triage and stabilization at the Catholic Charities Family Haven. Each participating family receives a case plan with emphasis on long-term housing. To help them achieve their short-term goals, families are linked up with other local agencies that can assist in turning their life around such as child care, legal assistance, employment, and financial assistance. The short-term goal is to assist a family in obtaining permanent housing, while enhancing their life skills, as they work toward self-sustainability.

Program Success Examples

The Furia family was in need of emergency shelter and found themselves at the Catholic Charities Family Haven. The family was staying with their parents when suddenly they were asked to leave with nowhere to turn and no money to pay for a motel. The pregnant mom, dad and nine-month-old infant entered the homeless shelter and was provided triage services and assigned to a master case manager. Once settled, the family and their dedicated case manager began to develop a housing plan and long term goals toward self-sustainability. The Furia family received a second chance at achieving housing stability with financial assistance from Catholic Charities. Not only did the family receive assistance from their master case manager in locating housing and advocating with the landlords on their behalf, the family also receive financial assistance that covered first, last and security rental deposits and a utility deposit. The Furia family continues to be stable with housing and employment. The family also continues to work with their Catholic Charities master case manager on budgeting and future planning.

Through a donation designated to help with housing, Bethesda House could help Bryan with a security deposit and he is now stably housed.

Michael also volunteered at Bethesda House by helping with landscaping and household chores. He is now gainfully employed as a paralegal and is stably housed.
