Our Mission

The mission of Catholic Charities is to provide service to people in need, to advocate for justice in social structures, and to call the entire church and other people of good will to do the same.

Our Vision

As Catholic Charities, we labor in the streets inviting and serving those who have been left out to know and experience the tremendous and abundant love of God through Jesus Christ. We commit ourselves to break down walls of division that keep sisters and brothers separated from one another, excluded, or rendered disposable by our society. With joy, we resolve to build bridges of hope, mercy and justice toward the creation of a culture of communal care responsive to the cries of those who are poor.

Our Principles

  • We Value All Human Life

    We believe that all human life is sacred and each person has inherent dignity from the moment of conception to natural death.

  • We Care for the Poor

    We believe that the poor, the vulnerable and the people on the edges of society deserve the care necessary to uphold their dignity and alleviate their suffering.

  • We Embrace Solidarity

    We believe that human beings form one family, each member having equal rights and responsibilities, and that we are destined for a common home after death.

  • We Support Families

    We believe that a strong and healthy family life is the groundwork for the integral human development of both the individual and society.

  • We Uphold Fundamental Rights

    We believe that each human being has a right to life, nutrition, housing, health care, education, employment and to practice one's faith.

  • We Support Workers

    We believe that in accord with their dignity workers have the right to full employment, to fair wages, to private property and to economic initiative.

  • We Care for God’s Creation

    We believe that the human community has the responsibility to care for and protect the earth through good stewardship of natural resources.
