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. Believing in the presence of God in our midst, we proclaim the sanctity of human life and the dignity of the person by sharing in the mission of Jesus given to the Church. To this end, Catholic Charities works with individuals, families and communities to help them meet their need, address their issues, eliminate oppression, and build a just and compassionate society.
"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.
