The Caritas Awards are presented by Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster each year to organizations and individuals who exemplify the agency’s mission to provide help and create hope.

 “We are grateful for strong community partners, like this year’s honorees, who embrace our mission, embody the spirit of Caritas, and share in our commitment to creating brighter futures for our neighbors in need,” said Shannon Kelly, CEO, Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster.

Catholic Charities touches the lives of those in need of care, hope, and help. Programs include prevention, treatment, and recovery support for those struggling from the disease of addiction. Assistance with food, shelter, and other social safety-net supports helps individuals and families with basic necessities of life. Christmas Giving Programs make the holiday happier for hundreds of children. Counseling and bereavement support groups help those who have lost loved ones. Each year, Catholic Charities assists thousands of individuals and families, regardless of religion or ability to pay. Detailed program information is available at www.cccsos.org.

“We are blessed by the spirit of collaboration and generosity displayed by this year’s Caritas honorees,” said Ms. Kelly. “We are thrilled to be hosting the Celebration at an exciting new venue and invite friends, colleagues, and supporters of both Catholic Charities and our honorees to join us in congratulating our award recipients in person at the Kartrite Resort this spring.”
