  • Referrals for clinical counseling, free of charge.
  • Provide health education and tangible resources to help families raise their children in healthy and loving homes.
  • We partner with other community agencies such as Project Gabriel, Birthchoice, and Project Rachel and Catholic parishes to support pregnant families.
Support of the Family

Services in Support of the Family provide assistance for poor, isolated and vulnerable families in Eastern North Carolina. Families receive a comprehensive assessment of needs, which results in either initial problem-solving for many issues, or a supported referral to connect with other services within the community. Additionally, clinical counseling services are available to resolve challenging family situations. Services are provided in English and Spanish.

The goals of Services in Support of the Family include:

  • Assisting families to develop skills and utilize opportunities to improve their lives
  • Assisting families to establish and/or maintain stable and supportive family environments.
  • Providing opportunities for families within neighborhoods and communities to meet and provide mutual support for each other.
  • Helping individuals with strong leadership abilities develop skills to benefit their community.

Volunteers play a very important role in the services that Catholic Charities provide. Volunteers work with poor and vulnerable families of all faith traditions, and quite a few only Speak Spanish.

Throughout our 5 regions we have volunteers working in the following capacities: filing, reception, working in the food pantry (stocking shelves with food, organizing and implementing logistics for food donations and distribution), entering data, and organizing donated clothes.

Volunteers can also be trained to assist with our Family Support Services program. Some responsibilities include: conducting screening interviews to identify clients’ needs, assisting in the ESL or GED classes, assisting with resume writing, and working in the childcare area.

To find out how you can volunteer, please contact the Goldsboro Office at 910-947-0802.
