Strengthen. Jeannine and Steven, featured on this year's Appeal posters and brochures, were strengthened through counseling and guidance provided by our Marriage Counseling Center when they felt they were losing control over their hectic lives. Both parents work and home school their 5 young children, so they appreciated the many resources they gained through their therapist. These are just a few of the lives for whom you make a difference when you donate to the Appeal in support of Catholic Charities. If you have already given, thank you! If not, please go to http://www.ccwny.org and make a secure online donation credited to your parish or mail a gift to us at 741 Delaware Ave., Buffalo, NY.
