Our Organization

For over 145 years, Catholic Charities has served the poorest and most vulnerable members of our community. We continue to adapt and respond to the needs of the community and focus our attention where it is most needed. With the support of our donors, advocates and volunteers, we seek to prevent poverty before it takes hold, meet basic needs in times of crisis, and create pathways out of poverty.

Today, Catholic Charities is the largest comprehensive social service nonprofit in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul region, serving thousands of people through 35 different programs at over 20 locations.

A Nationally Recognized Nonprofit

Catholic Charities has been honored by the Charities Review Council for meeting the Council’s strict accountability standards. The agency is accredited by the Council on Accreditation and Minnesota Council of Child Caring Agencies (MCCCA).

Catholic Charities is a member of Catholic Charities USA, one of the largest private networks of social services providers in the country.

The story begins with you.

In the last year, with your generous support, Catholic Charities provided more than 450,000 nights of housing and shelter and served over one million meals to those living in poverty – thank you! Our incredible volunteers gave more than 165,000 hours of service and more than 10,000 community members advocated on behalf of those most in need. Catholic Charities is fortunate to be part of such a generous community – we could not do our work alone.
