THIS MONTH FROM CATHOLIC CHARITIES
Catholic Charities logo

Services:

An increasing number of children are developing behavior problems tied to underdeveloped social and emotional skills. These issues can lead to major challenges for the child and parents.

Catholic Charities has brought The Incredible Years, a nationally recognized program, to Butler County.  This program targets children (preschool to 7 years of age) with behavioral problems, their parents and teachers.  It is designed to prevent and treat behavior problems in children and strengthen parenting skills and the parent/child relationship.

Are you a school interested in bringing Incredible Years to your school, a parent interested in one of our programs, or know of a parent that would benefit?  Contact Pam Mortensen at pmortensen@ccswoh.org or (513) 863-6129.

Thank you:

Thank you to those of you who have responded to Catholic Charities need for assistance with welcoming the stranger. We welcomed 65 refugees during the month of March. "Ask and it will be given to you" Mt 7:7. We asked and people responded with those willing to help with transportation and donating needed household items. If you feel called to this ministry of charity, we still have needs. Call Jeanne at 513-672-3707 or by email at jcairns@ccswoh.org.
