As an agency of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Rochester, with a deeply held belief in the dignity of all people, we work to reduce poverty, promote wellness and self-sufficiency, and advocate for social justice.

We are committed to serving all individuals in need – regardless of racial, ethnic, cultural, or religious origins, ability to pay, or mental, physical or developmental challenges.

Our vision is a just and poverty-free community.


The Catholic tradition teaches that human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met. Therefore, every person has a fundamental right to life and a right to those things required for human decency.

Corresponding to these rights are duties and responsibilities – to one another, to our families, and to the larger society.
