  • Catholic Charities Update

    A Car Makes All the Difference

    Catholic Charities, Diocese of Arlington's Car Ministry ended 2013 with a burst of used car donations but not enough to put a dent in their backlog of those in need waiting for a car. Candidates wait 12 to 15 months from the time an individual comes to us for help to receive a working vehicle.

    Recently, the Car Ministry was able to give a van to a struggling single mother of 5 children. She now is able to drive to work instead of taking public transportation and can take all her children with her to school events and other activities. For more information, contact Brian O'Connor at
