Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis HOME ABOUT FINANCIALS PEOPLE GET INVOLVED



All of us, together.

Thanks to generous donors, advocates and volunteers, Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis served nearly 23,000 men, women and children during their time of need in fiscal year 2019. As the needs of the community grow and become more complex, your support is more critical  than ever. You made it possible to serve more than one million meals, create pathways out of poverty through workforce development training and employment services, provide quality and consistent childcare and the stability of a home to thousands of Minnesotans in need.

Tim Marx

In the next year, we will honor our history, those we have served and the community which makes it possible. In our first 150 years, we have become a critical part of the civic and social infrastructure providing a warm bed, dignified shelter, care in times of crisis and foundations on which to grow. This year, we will also look to the next 150 years of Catholic Charities and how we can achieve our mission of serving those most in need and advocating for justice in the community. We hope you will join us as we work to achieve racial and social equity and a more vital community for all.

Honor the past. Build the future. All of us, together.

Hayley Mueller
Interim Vice President of Development

When they arrived at Family Service Center, Bottney, 26, Desire, 3, Destiny, 1 and the youngest, newborn Dominique, had just spent a month living in the family car. At Family Service Center, staff work to connect clients to resources that match their circumstances. Through connections there, and a lot of leg work on Bottney’s part, they were able to find a house they can afford with the support they still need through a partner program.
Ashleigh came to Catholic Charities’ Hope Street Shelter with no job and few resources. Hope Street not only provided food to eat and a bed to sleep in, but case management, connections to resources and the sense that people truly care about her wellbeing. At Hope Street, Ashleigh was able to regroup, find a job and a stable home for her to live.
While he’s been in recovery from addiction for more than 20 years, Tony’s past of using still haunts him. His addiction and subsequent incarcerations have made it nearly impossible for him to rent a place of his own or get a job. With no place to live and no way to make an honest living, Tony was stuck in a cycle of taking desperate measures to survive. With determination, a lot of hard work and the support of the Mary F. Frey Opportunity Center in Minneapolis, Tony is becoming self-sufficient.
Debbie’s life has taken some dramatic turns in the last six months. She came to the Medical Respite Unit after a stay at United Hospital. In addition to other medical challenges, Debbie was having suicidal ideations, strategizing the best way to end her life. Now she’s looking ahead, and thanking Catholic Charities and God for helping her find the way. Indeed, she has come a long way. Debbie worked with an employment specialist at Catholic Charities to renew her CNA license, complete her resume and apply for jobs. She is attending AA meetings, and recently took a trip to the YMCA.
