Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia is another great Hampton Roads non-profit organization that Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers is happy to have supported for years.
Cooper Hurley founding partner Jim Hurley is a board member of the Virginia Beach-based organization and our law firm is a regular sponsor. He recently appeared in a video with Tracy Fick, Director of Development and Marketing at Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia.
CCEV has been working with the most vulnerable people in the Hampton Roads community for decades.
It was founded in 1932 as the Norfolk Bureau of Catholic Charities to care for widows, orphaned and abandoned children. It now helps the disadvantaged across a wide range of spectrums.
“We help people from all stages of life from infancy to senior citizens, said CEO Chris Tan in a recent interview.
Those vital services include:
Services for senior citizens;
Mental health counseling.
“We focus our services on the poor and the vulnerable in our community and we are here to help,” Chris Tan said.
Recently, CCEVA received funding once again through the Virginia Department of Social Services to continue to provide an evidence-based family education course called Strengthening Families.
It’s a program that runs for 14 consecutive weeks and involves the entire family. Families receive education in topics ranging from positive discipline to conflict resolution and effective communication, important building blocks in an increasingly fragmented age.
The program provides both parents and children with facilitators who provide age-appropriate education. The program includes ways to boost family interactions such as bringing the family back together to enjoy meals. The interaction allows facilitators to look at how family members communicate and to provide help and guidance.
“Catholic charities is an amazing organization that helps people of all beliefs,” said Jim Hurley
Tracy Fick said Catholic Charities serves as many as 8,000 local families every year in areas like mental health counseling, senior services, homelessness, youth and family services and financial counseling.
