Catholic Charities Assistance and Resources
Need help? Call our main number: 713-526-4611
You can reach our main office Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. to request assistance. As a precautionary measure, Catholic Charities is only serving clients by phone and email appointment at this time. No face-to-face meetings. Existing clients should contact their case managers for further information regarding existing appointments.
Need help now or don’t know where to start? Dial 2-1-1 (unless it is a police emergency; then dial 9-1-1).
You will reach a free helpline – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in many languages. This is a good place to start, especially if you have multiple needs (such as child care, food stamps, care for an aging parent, a haven from domestic violence, rent assistance or shelter).
