Catholic Family Center receives $2.4M from state

Rochester Business Journal

Catholic Family Center of the Diocese of Rochester has received a $2.4 million competitive award from the state Office of Temporary Disability Assistance to operate a program serving refugees, the organization announced Monday.

The Refugee Social Services Program focuses on helping refugees attain self-sufficiency through employment preparation and job placement activities, officials noted. The award, given over a five-year period, represents a significant increase in funding.

“We are grateful for the state’s faith in Catholic Family Center’s ability to best operate the program,” said Marlene Bessette, president and CEO. “The increase in funding is a reflection of the value these services bring to the Greater Rochester community.”
 
Along with funding programs, the grant also will lead to additional staff to increase the volume and quality of services delivered, officials said.
