Neighbor to Neighbor Class Interviews
Do you struggle to achieve your goals and dreams? Do you pay bills late? Do bad habits create problems for you? Catholic Charities' Neighbor-to-Neighbor program can help! The Neighbor to Neighbor Program (NTN) is a faith-based, 14-lesson course, which helps people take concrete steps to improve their lives. It will help you to take a close look at the choices you have made, why you made them, and how you can make positive, healthy and financially wise choices in the future. Upon successful completion of the course, participants earn a voucher toward their rent, utilities, or other appropriate expense or outstanding bill. Click here for more information.

Synod on Family Survey
At the request of Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, General Secretary of the Synod of Bishops, the Diocese of Evansville is preparing its response to a survey for use at the October 2015 Ordinary Synod of Bishops on the theme The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and Contemporary World.
To that end, Bishop Charles Thompson asked Catholic Charities' Office of Family Life to create a system for gathering responses to the Reflection Questions. All diocesan parishioners are encouraged to complete the survey. Individuals who wish to respond to the survey are strongly encouraged to first read the preparatory document ("Lineamenta") for the 2015 Ordinary Synod of Bishops (below), as it contextualizes the survey.
