The Catherine McAuley Center's mission is to offer hope and opportunity through educational and supportive services that promote stability, skill-building, and connection.

When those three components are in place, our neighbors are able to embrace opportunities to better themselves, their families, and the wider community. That's our vision: all neighbors working together for an inclusive community.

Services


Adult Basic Education

The Adult Basic Education Program provides one-on-one tutoring for adult learners in English as a Second Language, U.S. Citizenship exam preparation, basic math, reading, and writing, and computer skills. Students work each week with a volunteer tutor or staff member. Together, the Center's 400+ students represent about 50 countries!
 

Common goals of students are to communicate better in daily life, find a better job, and to be able to support their children in school. Through classes at the Catherine McAuley Center, students gain the knowledge and skills that empower them to improve financial stability and become more involved in the community.
 

Transitional HousingTransitional Housing for Women

The Transitional Housing Program provides shelter, intensive case management, and skill-building opportunities to help women who have experienced trauma achieve and maintain stable housing, relationships, and finances.
 

CMC’s Transitional Housing Program is the only housing program in Cedar Rapids that serves unaccompanied women in a trauma-informed, female responsive environment, meaning all aspects of the program are designed to meet the unique needs of women. The program can house up to 15 women at a time, and residents may stay in the program up to two years. 
 

Refugee & Immigrant Services

In January 2017 the Catherine McAuley Center became an affiliate site of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants , expanding refugee resettlement efforts in Cedar Rapids. We continue to develop our services for those who have been uprooted from their communities because of conflicts and conditions abroad in order to help families become self-sufficient as quickly as possible in their new Eastern Iowa homes. 
 

Current services include refugee resettlement (in which CMC connects families with housing, medical care, employment, and education within their first 90 days in the U.S.), employment services (group and individual instruction to support immigrants and refugees who are pursuing new or better employment) and Resource Navigation (referrals to appropriate community services outside of those directly offered by CMC).
