Welcome to Catholic Charities

Catholic Charities is committed to fighting the effects of poverty and its root causes through its work. Catholic Charities provides a number of needed programs and services in this community with a priority toward the poor. We work to ensure that people have food, clothing, shelter, medical services, and the ability to achieve a decent standard of living. We offer programs that specialize in residential services, community support services, and public policy advocacy and parish services.

Catholic Charities serves people of all faiths and backgrounds, does not discriminate, and is inclusive of all people. Our Board of Directors is composed of volunteers from various backgrounds. Over 90% of all money donated is spent on the needs of those we serve.
