The Catholic Charities Network

The Catholic Charities ministry in the United States is designed to help people in need at both the local and national level. Our 164 member agencies faithfully serve the unique needs of communities in 2,631 different locations, while our national office, Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), supports member agencies through knowledge-sharing and network gatherings. CCUSA also brings the voice of the network to the national stage through advocacy, media initiatives, and other communication partners, while member agencies work to implement our policy advances on the ground.

Our member agencies are active in virtually all 50 states and in five U.S. territories.

Having a national office lets us take advantage of funds offered by organizations that want a single grantee that can reach multiple states. A large national ministry also means that when problems arise, Catholic Charities has key teams and services already in place and waiting to help.
