Giving voice to the concerns and needs of our clients, parishes, interfaith leaders, and community partners on a variety of justice issues

The spirit of our work at Catholic Charities is rooted in Catholic Social Teaching leading us not only to provide direct services for vulnerable people, but also to advocate for them and give voice to their concerns and needs. We provide support for Catholic parishes in their work of service and advocacy and work with community partners and interfaith religious leaders on a variety of justice issues.

Our staff are active in local, state and national advocacy efforts, and share their stories and perspectives on the issues our clients are facing on our blog.
