Due to COVID-19 the clothing voucher program is suspended and will reopen in October on Tuesdays, by appointment only. Eligible clients may receive a voucher once every four months.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors we are curtailing donations by appointment because the shop is full! In mid-August we resumed accepting donations by telephone appointment 703-548-4881. Thank you for supporting our Emergency Assistance Program and we look forward to serving you again.

Preventative measures to safeguard our clients, volunteers and staff are in place at all Catholic Charities programs. Schedules and procedures have changed at some locations. Check here regularly for program updates.
