Be the Change

Catholic Charities WV is happy to be one of 177+ partners in the Our Children Our Future campaign! Together, organizations and people across West Virginia have banded together to create and change state policies in an effort to end child poverty. We’d love for you to join us!

To get started, please consider attending one of the four [free] day-long Policy Workshops [lunch is included]. The workshops will be held in Davis, Beckley, Huntington, and Weirton. Several policy changes have been proposed, and will be explored at each Workshop. Choose to attend based on location, or the issue that you are most interested in. Read on for more detailed information! And you can always email me, Kate, at if you have questions. Happy Advocating!
