Programs: America relies on Catholic Charities (CC) to provide critical human services to people in need. As the nation's fourth largest social service provider, (CC) serves more than 7.8 million people of all faiths each year. Catholic Charities is even listed in the federal government's National Disaster Response Plan as one of 5 organizations relied on for providing food, shelter, emergency first aid, and to distribute emergency relief items during domestic disasters.

 

Poverty in America is a moral and social crisis. It threatens the health and economic well-being of our families and our nation as a whole. In response to this crisis, Catholic Charities USA has launched the Campaign to Reduce Poverty in America.

 

From responding to the September 11 attacks, hurricane Katrina and the many hundreds of smaller disasters that happen every year, Catholic Charities USA and its member agencies have learned that being prepared for disasters is critical to a successful response when they occur. Catholic Charities USA is actively preparing its more than 1,700 member agencies across the nation for the disasters of tomorrow, be they large or small. The goal is to ensure that each Catholic Charities agency has a disaster response plan, and a regional response team they can turn to for assistance before and during a disaster. Disaster preparedness is critical. A major disaster could happen at any time, and those of all degrees are occurring with greater frequency.

Mission:
The mission of Catholic Charities USA is to exercise leadership in assisting its membership, particularly the diocesan Catholic Charities agencies and supporting group members, in their mission of service, advocacy and convening.
