Don’t you love new beginnings?
Can you remember the last time you made a big move to a new city, or settled into a new home? Do you remember how it felt when you started a new job or a new degree program? Maybe you just cleaned out your junk drawer last weekend. Whether it’s a big change or a small pleasure, we all love to do something new.
We love new beginnings because they are exciting! When you start something fresh, you feel full of energy, ideas and possibility, and that’s exactly how we feel today at Catholic Charities about our new blog. It’s a new way for us to share all the good news of our agency with you.
We hope it will be fun, fresh and engaging because we have a lot going on we’d like to share.
Did you know we have more than a dozen programs, including an urban farm, legal help for immigrants, and a trend-setting model that keeps families together so they can heal more completely from addiction and trauma?
Have you ever wondered about daily life in all those new buildings we’ve put up over the last several years?
Are you curious about who makes up our growing staff of more than 300 professionals?
Through our blog, we hope to provide you with regular doses of the good news of Catholic Charities and give you an in-depth understanding of how and why Catholic Charities works.
We also need you to help us put the finishing touches on the blog by suggesting a name! Send us your ideas for a fun, catchy title. If we choose yours, we’ll send you our thanks and some Catholic Charities swag. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1 with your suggestions. The title should:
be informal, catchy and fun;
identify the blog as a source of good news from the agency; and
uphold our core values of respect, collaboration, justice and compassion.
We love new beginnings. You might even say we specialize in them. Whether we’re providing disaster relief to people affected by fires and windstorms or welcoming a family at risk of experiencing homelessness into a transitional shelter, we place ourselves at life’s crossroads and point the way toward hope.
We invite you to follow us on this journey and learn more about what that vocation looks like for us, our supporters and partners, and our clients.
