Community Advocacy Program (CAP)

Fairfield County

Catholic Charities Community Advocacy Program is one of the newest services we offer.  This program was created to provide residents of Fairfield County with a hand-up when facing difficult situations and to connect them with resources in their local area.

People can call our Community Resource Advocate and participate in a brief telephone interview to determine how we can best help.


  • Short term Case Management Services
  • Assistance with applying for benefits
  • Food Resources
  • Utility Resources and Assistance
  • Furniture and Clothing Referrals
  • Advocacy, Information, and Referrals to other Catholic Charities Programs

If you are seeking financial assistance, it is preferable to have a Case Manager or Service Provider contact Community Advocacy Program on your behalf.    All required documents will be requested prior to the approval of any financial aid.
