Catholic Charities is a premier service provider for the most vulnerable in our community.

By providing emergency financial assistance, workforce development, food assistance, immigration legal services, refugee resettlement and caring for persons with intellectual and developmental differences, we are putting our beliefs into action to transform lives.

For 75 years, we have served the local community as a compassionate helper, respected leader, and a reliable partner.  Our fundamental belief is that we have a responsibility to care for those in need by meeting basic human needs, restoring dignity, and assisting toward self-sufficiency.
