Catholic Charities
Heroes on the Front Lines



We are here.

Our teams are on the front lines, bravely and tirelessly supporting those in our community who are most vulnerable and at-risk. 

Our essential services include housing and caring for people with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. We support aging adults, adults with disabilities, and immigrants. 
We provide food and care to seniors and families experiencing homelessness. And we give safe harbor and resources to children who have experienced trauma.

Our programs are open and our dedicated employees continue to care for our neighbors in accordance with all the safety measures to keep them and those we serve safe.

As never before, we need your support

We are deeply grateful to our 
Catholic Charities essential workers who are making sure the families and individuals who rely on us have the services and support they need during this challenging time of COVID-19.

Serving a Select Group of People: Everyone.

Daphne's work with people experiencing dementia and Alzheimer's and those with disabilities has stopped due to COVID-19.  
She misses them.

Our team has risen to the heady challenge of increased food insecurity due to the pandemic. Together, we're ensuring seniors and families don't go hungry.

Patty's career at Catholic Charities spans more than 25 years. Her dedication and passion are inspiring.

For Diane, the people we serve are inspiring 
role models.  It also helps that, "our team rocks!"

Keeping families safe? We do it every day.  
Doing it during shelter-in-place? We've got this.

COVID-19 took Buck from CYO Camp to St. Vincent's.  He's determined to bring the CYO Camp spirit to the boys he now works with.

Ben, a volunteer firefighter and Catholic Charities employee, is also a champion of Census 2020! Be counted!

Fabiola is on furlough from CYO Camp. Right now, she's bringing her energy and perspective to the kids at 
St. Vincent's School for Boys.

Vincent is using his creativity and experience at CYO Camp to develop activities for the kids at 
St. Vincent's School for Boys.

Help us serve everyone

Unaccompanied minors are some of the most vulnerable people we serve.  Now more than ever, they need our help.

With close to 50 boys sheltering-in-place 24/7 at 
St. Vincent's School for Boys, staff have become creative with their care.

Our CYO Camp opened its "doors" to the boys from St. Vincent's for a day. It was magical.

Three weeks into shelter-in-place, and the boys and staff from St. Vincent's experienced a welcome, carefully planned day away at CYO camp.

Angie's enthusiasm about how our CYO Camp activities help the boys at St. Vincent's is exhilarating.
