The Coffee Club is open to everyone four mornings a week and serves more than 1,000 cups of coffee each month!

Giving Hope to Jim

I have been coming to the Coffee Club in Chester for almost two years now. When I arrived in Chester, I had $20.00 in my pocket and didn’t know anyone in this area. The volunteers here at the Coffee Club became my family and support group. I am blessed to be here. I know that if it weren’t for these people, I would be just a statistic. When you visit the Coffee Club you receive coffee, something to eat, and most importantly, fellowship. You also can take a hot shower and do laundry. I am working now and don’t visit the Coffee Club as often as I used to. That’s because they have helped me to become more self-sufficient and independent. Catholic Social Services is a ray of hope to this community—educating them, feeding them, helping them find permanent housing, and so much more. There is such a need for these services in Chester and the Catholic Charities Appeal makes all this possible…they are giving us all hope.

Giving Hope to Chester

I work as a Case Manager at the Catholic Social Services Delaware County Family Service Center in Chester. My greatest joy is helping my clients find employment and permanent housing. I don’t think our clients in Chester could survive without the help they receive here; a lot of them really depend on us. None of what we do would be possible without the support of the Catholic Charities Appeal. We all need to do our part to help those in need —to help the poor, the homeless, those with mental and physical disabilities. We all should find it within our hearts to do what we can to help others.

Working with the CSS team in Chester has been such a blessing in my life. I fell on some hard times and really needed help. My case manager helped me find permanent housing, which has been a dream come true. I have lived on my own now for four years and I am doing great. The budget class has really taught me to manage my money, how to pay my bills and rent on time, and the importance of saving. All the programs that are offered here have truly changed my life and helped me to become the best version of myself. Here at CSS they welcome you and show you how much they care. I couldn’t have asked for better.
