You can help Afghan families build a new life.
Thank you so much for opening your heart to newly-arrived Afghan families. They need all of the basic elements required to start a new life in our community: shelter, food, clothing, and other essentials. Families from Afghanistan can have six or more members in the household.
As a sponsor, there are many ways you could help. Do you have a fully-furnished home you can share with a family? Are you able to pay for their groceries?
Please make a donation today or volunteer to help Afghan refugees as they resettle in our community. Your gift will provide food, clothing, shelter, household goods, and much more, helping our Afghan allies build a new life.
If more is raised than is required, we will use your generous gifts to help people in need through our many programs that work together to support self-sufficiency and a life of dignity.
Use our Amazon Wish List to provide household items to help Afghan families set up their new homes.
We are also happy to take donations of gifts cards from Target or Walmart. You can drop off gift cards at the Catholic Charities main office at 2900 Louisiana, Houston, TX 77006, located in Midtown Houston; or mail them to that address, attention: Refugee Resettlement Program.
If you wish to donate used furniture or mattresses, please contact the Houston Furniture Bank. We are working with them to secure furnishings for newly-arrived Afghan families.
Donate today to help Afghan families who served beside American troops as they flee from danger to a new home in Houston!
