Mental Health Emergency:
If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please call 911 if you are in crisis and a threat to yourself or someone else. If you are not a client but are severely distressed and need to speak with a mental health counselor, please call 757-627-LIFE (5433) or 757-496-3500.
If you are currently a client utilizing Mental Health Counseling services from CCEVA, please call 757-274-4956.
If you are pregnant, you may wish to speak with someone about your life changing situation. Choosing whether to parent or place your child with an adoptive family may be the most important and far reaching decision you will make in your life. Catholic Charities is staffed by professional social workers who are trained specifically to help you make the best decision for you and your unborn child. Our pregnancy counseling services are free and strictly confidential. Catholic Charities’ staff also can link you to resources in the community needed for a healthy pregnancy including pre-natal care, housing and adoption choices. Please contact our staff at 1-800-CARE002 (1-800-227-3002)
Unfortunately, due to a high demand for assistance in November and December, we are not able to offer financial assistance at this time. When more resources become available, we will re-open the Financial Assistance Hotline.
Financial assistance may be available to individuals and families in financial need. We receive more applications than funding and completing an application DOES NOT guarantee financial assistance.
All requests for financial assistance are by appointment only. Calls are taken beginning at 9AM, the first business day of each week. Prospective clients must call (757) 533-9569 to schedule an appointment. Calls are accepted until all available appointments are filled. Once all available appointments are filled, the appointment line is closed until the following week. Walk-In requests for financial assistance are not accepted. Additional documentation (such as proof of income, proof of identity, and a copy of the bill) may be required to submit your application for financial assistance. Sources of funding are limited.
Requirements for eligibility include:
- Renter or Homeowner must physically occupy the property as his/her principle residence.
- Bill must be in Occupant’s name at time of request.
- The Bill should not be delinquent more than 30 days at the time of application.
- Program can not serve clients who were served within an 18 month period.
- Individual or Family must be in a crisis beyond their control.
- Applicants must show the ability to maintain self-sufficiency after assistance is awarded.
