Catholic Charities of Oregon was featured in Catholic New York as a partner in the pilot project “The Border is Everywhere”.
“The Border is Everywhere” is headed by Catholic Charities USA in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Catholic Legal Immigration Network and Catholic Charities of Oregon.
