REPORT FOR MARCH 2020 - APRIL 2021
Through our leaders and volunteers, our ministries and agencies, Catholics throughout Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties have made a significant impact in the lives of our neighbors affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, job loss and isolation of the past year.
During these unprecedented months, record numbers of people donated to local parishes, schools and food pantries. Many more volunteered their time to ensure the wellbeing of their neighbors and those in greatest need. Our Catholic community, through partnerships with other faith-based and nonprofit organizations, as well as civic agencies, delivered assistance where it was needed most.
Through public-private partnerships, specialized ministries and neighbor-to-neighbor parish groups, employees and volunteers provided emergency assistance for food, shelter, immigration, employment support, utility assistance, eviction prevention and many other needs.
We are grateful to all of those who came together from all walks of life to bring mercy and hope during this most difficult year.
Together we have weathered the pandemic. We pray that we will be a stronger and more united community because of it. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles remains committed to the well being of all of our neighbors. We look forward to new partnership opportunities as together we create a more caring and just community for all.
