From Surviving to Thriving.
The mission of Catholic Charities is to serve those most in need and to advocate for justice in the community.
Men, women, children and families, just like all of us, come to Catholic Charities during some of the hardest times in their lives. The darkness of abuse, illness, homelessness, hunger. From the youngest child at Northside Child Development Center, to the oldest soul seeking shelter at the Dorothy Day Place, we are their home; we are their family.
Simply put, it is the mission of Catholic Charities to be there in those darkest, hardest moments to provide help and hope for a better future.
As the need for our services grows and becomes increasingly complex, Catholic Charities is working to adapt and respond. We respond in three ways – preventing poverty, meeting basic needs in times of crisis and creating pathways out of poverty.
