---- — Catholic Charities of Delaware & Otsego Counties has opened an office in Delhi, according to a media release. 

The new office, at 7 Main St. in Delhi on the second floor of the Delhi Senior Community housing complex, will offer services such as dispute resolution and help for people in need. 

“The new office is small, but it’s a good start and it will make it easier to reach people in Delaware County,” said Lynn Glueckert, executive director of Catholic Charities in Delaware, Otsego, and Schoharie counties. “We’re going to be able to offer Caring Connections, a program to help people struggling with basic needs, as well as Dispute Resolution and Victim Impact Panels — programs that help strengthen our community.”

The agency’s main office for the two-county area, at 176 Main St. in Oneonta, offers the same services, as well as hosting the Community Maternity Services, and AIDS Services programs for the region. Catholic Charities also hosts a Dispute Resolution Center in Norwich, serving Chenango, Delaware and Otsego counties. 

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany is one of the largest, private social services organizations in the region. Serving 14 counties around the Capital District, Catholic Charities serves people in need regardless of race, creed, religion or lifestyle with housing, food, emergency assistance, disabilities services, senior services, and much more.

The new office will be open Mondays and Thursdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. For more information, visit www.charitiesCCDO.org or call the main office at 432-0061.
