Catholic Charities West Virginia COVID-19 Response
Catholic Charities West Virginia is committed to staying present and working through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic with the vulnerable populations we serve.
The health and safety of our clients, staff and volunteers are of utmost importance to us.
We have modified and will continue to modify our programs and services throughout the state to ensure the safety of all. As we work through this health crisis, we will be present with those we serve and further adapt our services to meet the needs of our changing world.
Throughout all sites, we are diligent in meeting the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) standards.
Food pantries have changed from a casual “shopping-like” experience to pre-packaged bags and boxes with pick-up at the door.
Hot meals, typically served buffet style, are now pre-packed in “to-go” containers and distributed at front entryways.
Meal deliveries from the Catholic Charities Neighborhood Center are being left at the front doors of recipients.
Case management and emergency assistance services are provided by phone rather than in-person visits.
Our Mobile Food Pantry has shifted to a drive-through model in all counties that it serves.
Our adult education centers are assisting learners in continuing their studies independently and online with follow-up phone calls from instructors.
Child Care Resource Center offices are assisting clients and providers via telephone and email.
HomeCare services have been modified with in-home caregivers wearing personal protection equipment and diligently adhering to CDC recommended guidelines for infection control.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Outreach program services continue to be offered remotely.
West Virginia Birth to Three services are provided through phone or virtual/video visits.
Child Care Food Program continues to provide services via telephone and email.
Our Disaster Services Program continues to provide assistance via telephone and email.
