Join the Sisters of Charity in caring for people in need
Member agencies across the country serve over 10 million people every year regardless of their religious, social or economic backgrounds in services that include education, family economic security, health, housing, and hunger.
The mission of Catholic Charities agencies 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. Many Catholic Charities agencies have branch and satellite offices throughout the area they serve. If the main office is far from where you live, the agency may have other offices closer to you. If you would like to contact one of the offices within your state or to obtain information on other locations, click the link below to find a member agency near you.
