Emergency Family Assistance:
The Catholic Charities Emergency Assistance Program is a voluntary service designed to meet emergency needs of persons who are faced with a life-sustaining crisis. It is not intended to provide on-going financial assistance.

The target population is families in crisis who reside in the geographical area of the diocese of Pensacola/Tallahassee. Caseworkers will normally prioritize and assist potential clients according to need, immediacy of need and family situation; families with children, expectant mothers, homeless, and individuals lacking immediate necessities are all priorities.

Catholic Charities attempts to assist all applicants, eligible or ineligible, with the emergency situation they face and by providing financial counseling, and information and referral to other resources as appropriate. Catholic Charities does not have income eligibility restrictions.

Christmas Assistance:
During the holidays, we become acutely aware of those in need. It is also a time of increased community awareness of vulnerable families and individuals. While all regional offices conduct a variety of holiday giving programs, Tallahassee’s Christmas Connection is the largest gift giving program in Northwest Florida. We ask for any and all gifts to accommodate those in need.
