Formed 19 years ago in 2004, by the ten parishes that comprise the Pontiac Vicariate of the Detroit Archdiocese. The P.A.V. decided to respond to several factors:
FAITH ~ FRIENDSHIP ~ SERVICE
Faith - that blesses C.C.R.T. every day.
Friendships- that bolster our work.
Service - that we are able to provide because of our 100+ volunteers.
"You see the basic inequity,” said Barbara. “It’s about sharing the wealth that’s around Pontiac. It’s about living out the Gospel values of faith, friendship and service.”
Catholic Community Response Team provides direct support and referral services to those whose basic needs are not met. We do it in a manner inspired by the Gospel of Jesus.
Provide a Christian compassionate response to those in need primarily within, but not limited to, the City of Pontiac. Provide intake services and assessments based on client needs to build a relationship in order to overcome small hurdles which hinder self-sustainability. Coordinate our efforts with other community agencies and providers to make the best use of available resources and to provide appropriate referrals to broaden the scope of our response.
