The Catherine McAuley Center offers hope and opportunity through educational and supportive services that promote stability, skill-building, and connection. The main demographics we serve are women, refugees, and immigrants. More than 450 students and clients access services from the Catherine McAuley Center in a typical year, from educational classes to case management and job search assistance. Many of these students have young children, who come with them to the center.
