Catholic Charities of Chemung/Schuyler is shifting to phone-based services only in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The measure is being taken to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Anyone in need of services is asked to call. For those in need of food, they may come to our Food Pantries during regular Pantry Hours. Call our Chemung Office at 607-734-9784 to receive a directory of Staff. In Schuyler County, call 607-535-2050 for a Staff Directory. Staff are working remotely and checking voicemail on a regular basis. Emails may also be sent via the Catholic Charities’ website at
