FY 2011-2012 Annual Report - Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas
2012 ANNUAL REPORT
Providing Help
A Message from the President/CEO
Dear Friends,
I wish all of you could personally witness the kind of life changing effect your
support of Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas has for our clients. I hope that
by sharing a snapshot of the impact your generosity has had on “Lisa”, you can
visualize the difference you have made.
A few years ago, Lisa, a mother with two children who hoped to move from an
unsafe low-income apartment complex into her own home, enrolled in a financial education series offered
by our Asset Building Case Management (ABC) program. She completed the series and qualified for an
individual development account (IDA) that allowed her to boost her savings by receiving matching funds.
Her completion of the financial education classes also qualified her for the chance to apply for a housing
program and down payment assistance. Lisa was poised to achieve the American dream. But then, her
home application was rejected. Several months of dreams dissolved in tears.
“God
created
mankind
in his image;
in the image
of God he
created
them.”
Genesis 1:27
Thankfully, Lisa’s story does not end there. She learned a difficult lesson, and committed herself to working
harder to achieve her goals. She renewed her work with our ABC Director and laid out a new plan to proceed towards homeownership. She took steps to improve her credit, enrolled in additional financial
education classes, and made her IDA a key piece of a personal savings plan. Now, Lisa is a first-time
homeowner providing a better living environment for herself and her children.
During the 2011 – 2012 Fiscal Year (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012) reported upon in these pages, the ABC
program marked a milestone of note that demonstrates Lisa is not alone. ABC recorded its 50th family
helped into first-time homeownership through their participation in our financial education and case
management activities and partner programs in the community. That equates to roughly one family per
month helped into a more self-sufficient housing situation since the program’s inception in 2008.
There are many people like Lisa who we are blessed to help through your support. In Fiscal Year 20112012, we helped 45 households avoid the prospect of homelessness and aided nearly 100 more through
other forms of emergency financial assistance. Our Hospitality Center daily feeding site for the hungry
served more than 42,000 meals. These are just a few of the highlights you – our friends, benefactors and
partners – have made possible.
More important than the statistical achievements noted within these pages, though, are the numerous
untold stories of human dignity restored through the services you have helped staff and volunteers
provide. The Book of Genesis in the Bible tells us God has created each one of us in the divine image.
Thank you for helping people like Lisa fulfill their potential, so that they experience the loving touch
of the hand of God in their lives.
Sincerely,
Carolyn R. Fernandez
President/CEO

The Value of our Volunteers...Priceless
Much of the impact we have in the community is thanks to the dedicated volunteers who give of their time
and talent to make a difference in the lives of our clients. Volunteers are especially critical in sustaining the
daily meal service at the Hospitality Center and in leading the grief support sessions conducted with children
through Elijah’s Place. In Fiscal Year 2012 (July 1, 2011—June 30, 2012), we benefitted from the contribution
of 19,411 volunteer hours. This volunteer service is estimated to have provided more than $425,000 in
contributed labor*.
The generosity of our volunteers was essential to achieving some of the highlights of the last fiscal year,
including the Hospitality Center’s service of 42,735 meals and a 48 percent growth in the number of people
served by Elijah’s Place. Above all, our volunteers and staff provided clients with quality services and
compassionate support which consistently reaffirmed their human dignity.

Gratitude for Our Supporters
Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas thanks all who supported the mission of our agency during Fiscal Year
2012 (July 1, 2011—June 30, 2012). It took the support of thousands of volunteers and financial donors to
make our services available in the community. Due to space limitations, this Annual Report only
acknowledges those who made financial contributions of at least $100 during the fiscal year and who did
not ask to remain anonymous. We are grateful for all who have supported our services, including those not
specifically acknowledged here.
“I would like
to thank you
so much from
the bottom
of my heart
for your help.
I just prayed
for your help
and God
answered.”
