Catholic Charities celebrated the opening of four new affordable housing units in Ilion last week. These apartments are four of the 60 units that Catholic Charities is working to open across the Diocese. This effort is a part of the Campaign for Catholic Charities, an initiative to raise funds for increased affordable housing, emergency assistance, volunteer efforts and accessibility to Catholic Charities’ services across all 14 counties of the Diocese.
