MESSAGE FROM HIS EMINENCEEdward Cardinal EganDear Friends in the Lord:Permit me to repeat what I have said and written so often in the past: Catholic Charitiesis an extraordinary blessing for the Church in New York, and indeed for the people of theentire Greater New York community.Shortly after I came here to serve as Archbishop, I participated in a dedication of new housingin the Bronx. As we were waiting for the ceremony to begin, the Mayor leaned toward me tosay that without Catholic Charities he did not know how the City of New York would continueto be the haven of hope it is for so many. I thanked him for his kind observation and haverepeated it many times. And as the years have passed, I have come to understand ever moreclearly how exact were the Mayor's words.Some months ago I visited the Mercy Center in the South Bronx where I witnessed a dedicatedCatholic Charities staff of women religious and generous young people assisting needymothers with food and clothing and helping children to learn the lessons of fair play andeven to do their homework. I was in a community of faith and love in one of our City's mosttroubled neighborhoods, and I was deeply proud of all I saw and heard.Most recently, I made my way to Dutchess County with Monsignor Kevin Sullivan, theExecutive Director of Catholic Charities, and some of his key collaborators to learn moreabout a home and a school sponsored by Catholic Charities and named for one of mypredecessors, Patrick Cardinal Hayes. They are two strongholds of mercy in which severelydisabled youngsters are given the best of professional care in an atmosphere of genuine love.Virtually none of the children could walk or even stand on their own, and many had to benourished by means of feeding-tubes. Nonetheless, all were being treated as beloved childrenof God, created in His image and likeness.THE MAYOR LEANEDTOWARD ME TOSAY THAT WITHOUTCATHOLIC CHARITIESHE DID NOT KNOWHOW THE CITY OFNEW YORK WOULDCONTINUE TO BETHE HAVEN OF HOPEIT IS FOR SO MANY.None of these wonders of Catholic Charities would be possible without the generous,ongoing support of so many men and women of good will in our Greater New Yorkcommunity. To each and everyone I express both my admiration and my heartfelt gratitude.You are making a crucially important difference in the lives of thousands. May the Lordbless you for your caring and concern.With kindest regards, I amVery truly yours,Edward Cardinal EganArchbishop of New YorkANNUAL REPORT 2006 3


MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEESJohn J. Phelan, Jr.Dear Friends:The extent of the good being done byCatholic Charities continues to amaze me.For almost a century, day in and day out,Catholic Charities has been rebuilding livesand touching almost every human need.Unfortunately, I am also amazed by thenumber of individuals and families that arestill in need in our society.To be better prepared to meet these humanneeds, Catholic Charities conducted asignificant strategic planning effort. Wesought to ensure that our agencies werewell run and attuned to the changingrequirements of those most in need. Wealso looked for the best ways to communicatethe range of good work Catholic Charitiesalready does. That is what this AnnualReport sets out to do. I invite you to learnmore about the work of Catholic Charitiesin helping our neighbors; and nurturingchildren and youth; feeding the hungryand sheltering the homeless; strengtheningfamilies and resolving crises; supportingthe physically and emotionally challenged;and welcoming and intergrating immigrantsand refugees.On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Ithank you for your ongoing support andcommitment to Catholic Charities of theArchdiocese of New York.

REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTORMonsignor Kevin SullivanYears ago I was given a card witha message that read somethinglike this:“When I wake in the morningI think about the abundanceof God's creation and all thegoodness in the world. Thismakes me want to spend theday rejoicing and taking inmore of this goodness. ThenI remember the millions whoare starving, the elderly whoare alone and frightened, andthe homeless sleeping on thestreet. Now I become eitherdejected and immobilized orobsessed about curing theworld's ills. These thoughtsmake it hard to plan the day.”Days – and nights – at CatholicCharities are like this. We aretorn. We rejoice for the wondersand even miracles that CatholicCharities works in providing helpand creating hope for thousandsof New Yorkers in need. But weare saddened and frustrated bythe suffering in the world andour failure to eradicate its causesor alleviate its symptoms.However, this doesn't make ithard to plan our day. It makes itfairly easy: day in and day outwe commit ourselves to helpsolve the problems of NewYorkers in need, non-Catholicsand Catholics alike. Each day weadvocate for policies that reducethe need for our help. Each daywe touch and rebuild lives withcompassion and dignity becauseevery individual is made in theimage of God. Each day we trustin God's grace and guidanceto strengthen our professionalservices.Catholic Charities succeeds intouching almost every humanneed because we are not onelarge centralized organization.Catholic Charities is a family ofmore than 90 vibrant agencies.Each one has a distinctive historyof providing help and creatinghope, promptly and locally inevery community throughout tencounties of the Archdiocese ofNew York. Each has its owndedicated Board and managementteam committed to helpingthose in need with compassionand dignity. Together we formThe Catholic Charities of theArchdiocese of New York.Permit me to share with you justa few highlights about how weprovide help and create hope inthe lives of countless thousandsthroughout the neighborhoodsand communities of New YorkCity and the Hudson Valley.PROTECTING AND NURTURINGCHILDREN AND YOUTHFoster CareEach night more than 4,500children and youth are in fostercare with Catholic Charitiesagencies. New York City isinitiating a new integratedfunding and program designto improve its foster care system.Catholic Charities agencies willbe in the forefront of this initiativethat seeks to keep childrenplaced in care in as homelikea setting as possible. Throughan integrated case managementarrangement this initiative alsoattempts to expedite reunitingchildren with their natural familiesor finding them a permanentadoptive home.MentoringThe merger of Catholic BigSisters Big Brothers has yieldedtwo important developmentsin its comprehensive mentoringprograms. Their newly renovatedfacilities now have a gym availablefor the use of the young womenand men they serve at theCardinal Spellman Center onthe Lower East Side. In addition,in recognition of the differentdevelopmental needs of youngmen and women, Catholic BigSisters Big Brothers has createdseven gender-specific programs –four for its young womenand three for its young men.Recognizing these differentneeds is a critical step towardpromoting greater respect andequality in relationships thatwill help these young peoplethroughout their lives.Sports, Scouting and RetreatsOnce again this year more than10,000 youngsters in three NewYork City boroughs and morethen 10,000 youngsters fromthe Hudson Valley participatedin wholesome after school sportsprograms sponsored by CYO.Through scouting and retreats,thousands more were helped todevelop values that will servethem well as adults.

REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR (continued)DAY IN AND DAY OUTWE COMMIT OURSELVESTO HELP SOLVE THEPROBLEMS OF NEWYORKERS IN NEED,NON-CATHOLICSAND CATHOLICS ALIKE.because volunteers give countlesshours of their time that CYOprograms are able to serve theyoung people of the New Yorkmetropolitan area.FEEDING THE HUNGRY ANDSHELTERING THE HOMELESSNew York is a city of intensecontrasts. Some residents earnmulti-million dollar bonuseswhile one million children livebelow the poverty level. “Belowthe poverty level” means thata child's family of four mustsurvive on an annual householdincome of less that $20,000.Modest rent in a small apartmentcan be $10,000 or more a year,which leaves only $10,000 for allother expenses including food,medicine and clothes.Emergency MealsThe cost of housing impactsdirectly on the ability of thepoor to provide enough foodfor their families. CatholicCharities affiliated communitybasedfood pantries and soupkitchens provided more than fivemillion emergency meals lastyear. Yet we remain disturbed bythe need to do this and so whilewe continue to provide nutritiousmeals we also advocate toeliminate the need for thesemeals.Preventing HomelessnessThe best thing you can do for a“homeless” individual or familyis to keep them from beinghomeless. Last year, more than2,000 families from every countyin the Archdiocese, many ofthem the working poor, kepttheir homes thanks to CatholicCharities. Unfortunately, wemust expand this assistancewhenever and wherever we canbecause the need continues tosoar as the cost of living rises.Affordable housing developed byparishes decades ago remains aprecious, yet precarious resource.During the past year CatholicCharities has worked to ensureproper coordination and oversightof this housing. To this end,we have worked to strengthenthe Association of CatholicHomes as an important vehiclenot only for preserving existinghousing, but also for developingnew affordable housing in theArchdiocese. The Archdiocesanrealignment process, driven bydemographic shifts, is affordingopportunities to explore the useof certain Church properties foradditional affordable housing.Transitional supported housingcontinues to be an importantcomponent of the work ofCatholic Charities. Dedicatedwomen religious have oftentaken the lead in developingand operating these housingprograms with an ingenuity,compassion and dedication thatmakes supported housing truehavens for those who may beexperiencing a homelike settingfor the first time.STRENGTHENING FAMILIES &RESOLVING CRISESEmergency AssistanceThe Gulf Coast is still strugglingwith the devastation caused byHurricanes Katrina and Rita.When I visited New Orleans lastyear I saw that the destructionwas still shocking. During thispast year, Catholic Charities hascooperated fully with effortsto keep the needs of the GulfRegion prominent on the nationalagenda. I was grateful to be ableto call attention to the ongoingreconstruction needs of theregion on our weekly programJustLove on the CatholicChannel on Sirius Satellite Radio.On a much smaller scale, butstill devastating to the individualfamilies affected, parts of ourArchdiocese suffered flooddamage caused by record springrainfall. Orange, Sullivan andWestchester counties wereamong those hardest hit andCatholic Charities responded.The Rusty Staub Mobile FoodPantry was on the scene inMamaroneck to distributefood to families impacted byfloods on the south shore ofWestchester.Preventive ServicesMany of us can remember atime when the help of a friendor relative prevented our family'sstruggle from turning into atragedy. When there are nofriends or relatives to whom afamily can turn, there is CatholicCharities and its experience instrengthening families andresolving potential crises.Preventive services offered byCatholic Charities agencies incommunities throughout NewYork can stop a critical situationfrom becoming a tragedy. Theyalso are the support that helpsfamilies stay together andprevents children from beingremoved from their families andplaced in foster care.SUPPORTING THE PHYSICALLYAND EMOTIONALLYCHALLENGEDResidences and CommunityDay ProgramsNone of us can know or explainwhy some individuals mustbear the burden of physicaland emotional disabilities. Whatwe do know is that those soburdened are our brothers andsisters made, like us, in God'simage and likeness. We musthelp them and their familieslive in dignity. Catholic Charitiesagencies help thousands ofphysically and emotionallychallenged neighbors of all agesby giving them a compassionate,dignified and homelike residence.With support, some of thechallenged can live in the66 CATHOLIC CHARITIES

Our task and goalare to maintain these residencesand programs, enhance theirquality even further, and to identifyopportunities for increasing thenumber of such residences.WELCOMING ANDINTEGRATING IMMIGRANTSAND REFUGEESProviding RefugeWork with immigrants is one ofthe jewels of Catholic Charitiesservices. This past year presentedvery troubling challenges. Randomraids to round up immigrantshave increased. Protections thatonce seemed solid have beenreduced. As a result CatholicCharities lawyers find it evenmore difficult to advise andrepresent immigrant workers.In spite of such challenges,we are proud of a landmarkdecision from the Federal Courtof Appeals in a case, argued byour Catholic Charities attorneys,overruling an immigration judgeand permitting a man, whosewife had been sterilized by theChinese government, to proceedwith his political asylum case andallow his family to be reunited.Accurate InformationWe constantly warn immigrantswho seek our services to bewareof unscrupulous notarios andstreet corner lawyers who maybe too incompetent or larcenousto properly counsel their clients.Many times Catholic Charitiesmust untangle these bungledattempts.LegalizationA major focus of the past yearhas been the prospects oflegalization – more a rollercoaster ride than a process.We continue to work forimmigration reform and toprepare immigrants for thatreform no matter how near orfar down the road. It is nevertoo soon to advise immigrantsto learn English, pay taxes,develop ties to the community,keep the laws of the country,and send their children toschool. Independent of anyimmigration legislation, CatholicCharities will continue torespond to thousands of pleasfor help from immigrants andtheir families.Building a Just AndCompassionate SocietyBecause Catholic Charitiestouches almost every humanneed, we are at the center of somuch in our society. We wouldnot be able to maintain our widescope and strength without thesupport of so many partnersfrom the larger New York arena.We are grateful for the supportof the New York financialcommunity highlighted eachyear by our Wall Street breakfast.We partner with our governmentofficials in seeking just policiesand effective programs for thesake of those in need.Because of the respect for thework of Catholic Charities, Iwas given the opportunity toparticipate in a forum on faith,values and poverty with leadingpresidential candidates atGeorge Washington Universityin Washington, DC. My questionposed at the forum was: “Howmight we as a nation movebeyond narrow and at timesexcessive individualism andre-commit ourselves to thecommon good – even thoughsuch a re-commitment requiresindividual sacrifice and selfrestraint?”This question wasborn from the reality I witnessday in and day out workingwith the staff, volunteers andbenefactors of Catholic Charities.They regularly sacrifice a part ofthemselves for the sake of thosein need. This is a commitmentand an example that CatholicCharities needs to nourish. It isa commitment that must be partof all society's institutions. Onlyby doing this will we providehelp and create hope formillions in need in New Yorkand throughout our nation.ANNUAL REPORT 2006 7

Many were the“boarder babies” who languishedalone in New York City hospitals.The Incarnation Children'sCenter became the home andhaven for “homeless childrenwith AIDS.” It pioneered theconcept of convalescent carefor children with AIDS withremarkable results: dramaticimprovement in the children'shealth due to high qualitymedical and nursing care plusproper nurturing. Many childrenpresumed to be terminally illimproved sufficiently to return toa home setting. For the criticallyill, ICC was a sanctuary of love inwhich they lived their final days.The changing nature of HIV/AIDSmedical management helpedchildren live longer. As a result,ICC became the only licensedpediatric skilled nursing facilityin New York for HIV-infectedchildren. Its current inpatientpopulation ranges from ages2 to 20. The medical diagnoses,cognitive disabilities and mentalhealth needs of the childrenpresent new challenges that areovercome by the Center's multifacetedtreatment model thatfocuses on developing eachchild's mind, body and spirit.CARDINAL HAYES HOME FORCHILDRENFounded more than sixty-fiveyears ago by the FranciscanMissionaries of Mary, theCardinal Hayes Home for Childrenprovides residential care andtreatment for young people whoare developmentally disabled andfrequently face other challengesincluding autism, cerebral palsy,epilepsy or neurological impairment.The main 62-acre campusof Cardinal Hayes, located in thesmall village of Millbrook, offersits residents a serene naturalsetting, as well as a staff highlyexperienced in the care ofmedically fragile children.
