Office of Life & Justice

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, social assistance programs have received an overwhelming number of requests for aid. We regret to say that resources are depleted and WE CANNOT FULFILL ANY REQUESTS AT THIS TIME.

Because of this, you may not be able to reach us by phone or email.  But please be aware that as the situation changes, we will resume our normal ministries as soon as possible.

The Diocese of Alexandria Office of Life & Justice, provides this Social Service Directory as a public service. It does not recommend, support, or guarantee any of the below mentioned services. Each consumer should be vigilant and ask questions of each provider including costs (if any), confidentiality of medical/personal information, and to whom they can address complaints if necessary.

If your need is urgent, we suggest contacting the services below yourself in order to expedite any assistance they may be able to provide.
