Explore the Catholic social teaching, grounded in Scripture and our faith tradition, that is at the root of who we are as Catholic Charities USA.
Be it helping people meet their most basic needs or advocating for social change to reduce poverty, our Catholic values, teachings, and traditions provide the foundation for the work our agencies do in communities across the country. Every person who comes to Catholic Charities for aid is treated with respect and dignity, for in them we see the face of Christ. We are called to witness the love of God through compassionate care of all God’s children and to work prophetically, as Jesus did in his time, to build a society based on justice and compassion.
"Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me."MATTHEW 25:40
Catholic Charities USA supports our agencies across the country in their work to provide critical services to those in need, advocates for justice in social structures and calls the entire church and other people of good will to do the same.
