Formed 16 years ago in 2004, by the 10 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. everyday.
Friendships- that bolster our work.
Service - that we are able to provide because
of our 100+ volunteers.
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 relationships 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.
