Catholic Charities Releases Report to Community On Cohoes Fire Assistance



Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany released a report today on the assistance provided to the survivors of the Cohoes Remsen Street fire. In January of 2018 Catholic Charities was asked by the City of Cohoes to provide disaster case management services to help the survivors of the November 30th, 2017 fire. Through three major fundraisers held in and around the Cohoes Community, over $106,000 was raised and turned over to Catholic Charities. Additional funds came in, and $119,785.59 went to help 43 people displaced by the fire. 100% of the funds went to rental assistance and to purchase items such as food, furniture, clothing, and household goods that were identified by the fire survivors as part of their recovery plan. 

“Catholic Charities was honored to play a part in helping Cohoes,” said Vincent W. Colonno, CEO of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany. “We are happy to provide this report back to the community.”

The report can be found on the Catholic Charities website at: www.ccrcda.org
