CWN Editor's Note: The office of Catholic Charities in the Chicago archdiocese has announced that it will cut back on government contract work, because of the “increasingly complex and uncertain funding environment.”

Catholic Charities will pull out of 75 existing government contracts, officials said. The move will eliminate services in child care, senior care, counseling, and youth programs.
