Assistance for Federal Employees and Contractors affected by Shutdown


Catholic Charities will be providing limited financial assistance to federal employees in the DC region who are experiencing hardship due to the ongoing government shutdown.

Assistance will be provided at the following locations:

MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2019
James Cardinal Hickey Center
924 G St NW,
Washington, DC
9 am to 1 pm


TUESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2019 
Susan D. Mona Center
5859 Allentown Way, Temple Hills, MD
9 am to 1 pm

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2019
Southern Maryland Food Bank
22A Irongate Drive,
Waldorf, MD
9 am to 1 pm

What do you need to provide?
A government employee or federal contractor ID will be needed to receive this assistance.

What type of assistance is available?
Financial assistance will be provided for current rent, medical needs, and essential home supplies.  Please bring documentation of bills so that a check can be sent to the proper vendor.

For assistance on mortgage payments we recommend you work directly with your bank as most are offering case by case assistance to their clients.  Similarly, because Pepco, Washington Gas and DC Water are offering support to furloughed workers, assistance will not be provided for these bills.
