Reducing the behaviors and conditions that lead to chaos and instability for individuals and families.
The Northside CYO serves about 500 newly arrived refugees every year. Catholic Charities staff provide support for refugees the moment they arrive in Syracuse. Case managers connect refugees to education, housing, jobs, English language class, health care, and more. Programs for children and youth help young refugees acclimate and find success.
If you would like to volunteer with our Refugee Services Team, please complete this brief Volunteer Intake Form, and we will be in touch.

Supportive Housing Services
This program provides subsidized housing and case management to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness.
We work with adults age 60 and older to assist them to remain safely and comfortably in their homes for as long as possible. Services include transportation, in-home assistance, minor household repairs with the Project Fix program, community programs, help with finances, and more. Elderly services also coordinate a volunteer program for people 55 and older. Read more about the volunteer program here.
