The Coastal office is located in North Charleston and is operated by Helen O’Leary and Lee Picciuto-Fursdon. This office primarily meets the needs of individuals and families in Charleston and the surrounding counties. Programs are offered providing medical, dental, and food assistance as well as care for the elderly.
Helen, who joined Catholic Charities in 2005, enjoys going for brisk walks, reading memoirs of spiritual leaders, cooking, gardening and traveling. Knowing that our programs give people hope and empowerment as well as the aid they need gives Helen a great feeling of accomplishment. She enjoys being able to see the results of the work of Catholic Charities as lives are changed each day and being able to see these changes through an agency that is Christ centered.
Lee joined our team this year. She likes to spend her time reading, writing, baking, doing yoga, and traveling. When she is not at work, Lee also likes to visit coffeehouses in search of the perfect one to relax at! She enjoys the variety of clients she encounters each day and the challenges each case brings.
