Tribute to Catholic Charities’
board chair to fund SafetyNet

Ray Neubauer

As Catholic Charities of the East Bay gathers to honor the service to the board by Ray Neubauer, the retiring chairman’s legacy will be long-lasting.

At Neubauer’s request, Catholic Charities has established The SafetyNet Prosperity Fund. The fund will provide resources and assistance to families who are in crisis through economic hardship, and facing possible foreclosure or homelessness.

Catholic Charities notes that a majority of those served qualify as very low-income, with less than 25 percent of the median income. High unemployment, low wages, a lack of affordable housing, inequities in public education, unequal access to quality health care and street violence are among the major factors threatening the security and stability of low-income people in many neighborhoods.

Neubauer will be honored at a dinner and social gathering on Feb. 10 at St. John Vianney Parish in Walnut Creek.

The Most Rev. Salvatore J. Cordileone, bishop of Oakland, will lead prayer and speak about Neubauer’s contributions to Catholic Charities. The Rev. Ron Schmidt of St. Anne’s in Byron will serve as emcee. Kathleen Odine, executive director of the Dean and Margaret Lesher Foundation, will speak about supporting safety net services for families in crisis.

Since moving to the Diocese of Oakland in 1986, Neubauer has served as catechist and board member for SPRED, served on the FACE Executive Board, and held multiple offices for the Knights of Columbus.
