Catholic Charities immigrant programs to be bolstered

Catholic Charities initiatives for immigrants and refugees will be celebrated and receive support at a brunch set for noon-1 p.m. Sunday, May 21, at Pure Space, 1315 NW Overton in Portland. There will be a silent auction. About 300 people are expected. 

For decades, Catholic Charities of Oregon has welcomed and aided immigrants and refugees in Oregon. 

Proposed federal policy has left the agency — not to mention the immigrants and refugees themselves — uncertain about funding and what law will allow. 

The Catholic Charities legal team consults with or represents 4,000 low-income immigrants in Oregon each year. Refugee resettlement workers made efforts to integrate more than 500 refugees into society, trying to respect dignity of individuals and cultures. 

“In short, Catholic Charities works to keep families together,” says a statement from the agency.
