Safe Auto Program 

(only for Individuals that live within the Diocese of Houma Thibodaux)

Car breakdowns can cause financial and employment problems for low income families, often to the point of making it too hard for them to get to and from work.  For this reason, Catholic Charities has begun a program that will assist with the costs of car repairs so that the family's employment is not jeopardized.  Local mechanics and car dealerships have partnered with us by volunteering their time & talents to fix the vehicles, allowing Catholic Charities to bear only the costs of the parts.  For more information call Jennifer Gaudet at 876-0490.

Volunteers Needed:  Catholic Charities is looking for mechanics that would be willing to donate their time and expertise to assist low income working families with car repairs.  Catholic Charities would pay for the parts needed to fix the vehicles.  Please call Jennifer Gaudet at 985-876-0490 to volunteer!
