Our history began over 60 years ago when the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh (which then covered the entire state) created a Charlotte-based branch of The Bureau of Catholic Charities. Our vast service area now extends through 46 counties, from Rockingham county in the north to Richmond county in the south and Cherokee county in the west. We seek opportunities to expand outreach to our neighbors in need through our physical locations in Asheville, Charlotte, Greensboro, Murphy, and Winston-Salem and through parish-based program offerings across the Diocese of Charlotte.
