Catholic Charities Announces Saving Children, Saving Families Campaign Co-chairs
“We are proud and honored to have been asked to chair the
Saving Children Saving Families Capital Campaign. This endeavor to
fund the Intensive Treatment Cottage at the St. Cloud Children’s Home
and the endowment to continue to fund the expansive work of
Catholic Charities is without question the most worthy of causes.”
To expand the work of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud and to enhance the
90-year-old building at Catholic Charities St. Cloud Children’s Home, we have embarked on
an $8 million campaign. With the help of our special co-chairs, staff and community volunteers, we are working to include the entire community in this important campaign.
$4 Million Endowment to Expand our Work
$4 Million Building Campaign to Enhance our Work
Allows us to implement new programs more quickly, addressing needs as they arise.
Address needs when the unexpected happens such as a school that is struck by lightning and burns to the ground; a paper mill burning, leaving hundreds jobless; a tornado tearing through the homes and businesses of a community.
Enhance a 90-year-old building that lacked the proper space to care for the most troubled youth that it serves.
Allow us to better serve over 150 young people daily at the Children’s Home.
A new, larger, state-of-the-art facility that allows for better site lines, more open spaces to interact with youth, and better lighting.
