Due to the Coronavirus health crisis, Catholic Human and Social Services of the Diocese of Scranton is seeing a significant increase in the number of people in need of help in our kitchens, food pantries, shelters and emergency relief assistance programs.

Catholic Human and Social Services operates five  food pantries in Carbondale, Hazleton, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. It also provides hundreds of meals daily to people at our kitchens in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre and operates three homeless shelters in Hazleton, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre.

To help meet the increased need, the Diocese has established the Coronavirus Emergency Fund.  If you are interested in supporting one of our social services ministries, kindly consider making on online gift at:  https://www.dioceseofscranton.org/directory/development-appeal-office/emergency-fund/support-catholic-social-services/ .
