We care about you and are doing our part to help limit the spread of COVID-19.  As a result, Catholic Charities of Oneida/Madison County is open but our office doors are not.  Offices are now closed to the general public.   However, we will continue to serve those in our care.  As a program of the Office of Mental Health, OASAS and OCFS we are still considered an essential service.


If you have something to drop off or need to talk with someone please call 315-724-2158 ext. 2246 or ext. 2255. If you need Community Assistance please dial ext. 2248. Please don't hesitate to reach out to your case manager by phone whenever possible.


In the coming weeks we will continue to assess the situation and will make sure that our clients and community needs are being met.


Thank you for your understanding.
