Catholic Community Response Team
The Catholic Community Response Team was founded in 2004 by the Pontiac Area Vicariate to provide direct referral and support services to those with crisis needs. They also work to build a permanent bridge between two populations who live in close proximity, but whose life experiences are worlds apart: those in crisis with urgent, unmet needs (primarily in the Pontiac area), and volunteers wanting to live out their faith through the works of charity and justice.

CCRT Mission:

  • Provide a Christian compassionate response to those in need primarily within, but not limited to, the City of Pontiac.
  • Live out the values of Catholic Social Teaching by our preferential response to the poor.
  • Act as a voice and shoulder for the disadvantaged in the broader community.
  • Coordinate community resources to serve the disadvantaged.
  • Network with other community providers and agencies to broaden the scope of our response.

What We Do:

  • Staff and volunteers provide intake services and perform assessments based on client needs.
  • Build relationships with those in need and help overcome small hurdles which hinder self-sustainability.
  • Provide referrals to appropriate service agencies.
  • Coordinate our efforts with other agencies to make the best use of available resources.
  • Act as liaison among funding sources.
  • Maintain and manage a database of clients, their needs and provided services.

Our funding and support comes from the twelve Catholic parishes within the Pontiac Area Vicariate, Catholic Social Services of Oakland County, the Archdiocese of Detroit as well as generous churches and individuals from within the greater community.
