About the Disaster Relief Program  In times of disaster, Catholic Charities is prepared and ready to help.  We recognize the value of coordinating disaster response and recovery through the sharing of resources, people, technical assistance and other support.

Formally established in 1990, the Catholic Charities USA Disaster Response Office was created through an agreement between the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (now the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) and Catholic Charities USA. 

From the 2005 hurricanes in the Gulf to winter floods in the northeast to spring tornadoes in the south and mid-west, Catholic Charities agencies respond with tremendous compassion, commitment and speed.

Relief and recovery services are provided at the local level by Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City. Long-term comprehensive case management is available to assist families in developing and implementing a recovery plan to help stabilize their household and achieve economic self-sufficiency.

Services  While our response is intended to address long-term needs in the community, we also provide critical services to meet immediate needs.

  • Counseling, outreach and referral services
  • Emergency assistance funds for food, shelter, clothing and other necessities
  • Vouchers for financial assistance to families affected by the disaster
  • Networking with other agencies and organizations
  • Providing volunteers to assist in disaster relief
  • Advocacy for survivors and their family

These services are provided regardless of religion, race, creed, or socio-economic status.
