Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas

I am a professional fund raiser that worked with the Diocese of Beaumont in the past. I pay a lot of attention to how the funds are handled, in other words, how much is spent on administration and how much is being used for the cause. If I recall correctly it was a little bit over 5% which is the half of the regional average of 10%. This is proof of how well they manage their resources.

On the other hand, their goal is to serve the whole Diocese area which is from Corrigan, TX to Orange,TX; That is about 250 miles across. The chanllenge they have and I believe they need to improve is reaching out to the smaller communities. Most of their services are in Beaumont, Orange and Port Arthur.
