Catholic Charities

Community Services is Catholic Charities’ link to parishes in the four counties (Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth, and Ocean) of the Diocese of Trenton.  Serving families in crises (regardless of religious background), it provides food, mortgage, rent and utilities assistance, temporary housing, counseling, and immigration services.  To learn more about Catholic Charities Community Services, visit its YouTube presentation, at:

In addition to its continued on-site services, Community Services is providing TELEHEALTH and TELEMENTAL HEALTH SERVICES.  All you need is a telephone.  To start, please call Catholic Charities at 1-800-360-7711.  In the event that you experience a psychiatric emergency and need immediate assistance, please call 911 or your local psychiatric emergency screening center.

In Monmouth County, Community Services offers several programs that provide assistance to individuals, children and families, to victims of natural disasters, and to those with mental illness and substance abuse.  Additional information can be found on the Catholic Charities website, at:
