Catholic Charities of the Texas Panhandle is a Community Housing Development Organization, designated by the City of Amarillo. This enables us to use HOME funding to acquire and renovate properties which are then rented to low-income clients. We have 13 apartment complex units consisting of one bedroom, efficiency and two-bedroom units. The apartments are “all bills paid,” and 10 percent are handicap-accessible. Additionally, we have four single family homes to help meet the housing needs for families.
Community Services – Adult Eye Care
Our adult eye care division works in conjunction with local optometrists and ophthalmologists to provide eye exams and glasses for adults unable to pay for these services. Donors and the Family Care Foundation provide money for us to buy eyeglasses, and local eye care professionals provide services at no cost to clients who qualify.
Catholic Charities Hunger Project
The CCHP is a grocery store located in our building at 2801 Duniven Circle. CCHP serves those in need 55 and older or disabled. Food is donated from parishes, businesses and individuals, as well as purchased from the High Plains Food Bank and grocery vendors. This program currently serves 500-600 each month and is growing rapidly. Clients shop for what they want and know they will use, leading to greater use of resources. We also deliver groceries once a month to approximately 60 homebound individuals. The Hunger Project continues to be a critical lifeline to this growing population
