Mission: In devotion and adherence to the teachings of Jesus and the Catholic Church, Catholic Charities seeks to serve and empower ALL in need regardless of race, nationality or creed.
Catholic Charities strives to assist everyone who asks for help with the ultimate goal of achieving self-reliance. Young mothers and their children who require a safe place to live turn to Our Mother's House of Catholic Charities for shelter, guidance and the skills to reach independence. Preschool students from struggling, working-poor families receive a full range of services and quality education to be ready for kindergarten at St. Martha's Early Learning Center of Catholic Charities. Homeless families in crisis reside at the Catholic Charities Family Haven and obtain long-term care that solves their housing and economic issues to become self-supporting. The First Time Homebuyer Class instructs at-risk buyers with realistic steps to successful home ownership. Your generosity and support of Catholic Charities enables those in need to live a better life.
