Catholic Charities is fulfilling its mission
to provide compassionate social services to those in need.

Offering over forty programs from eight offices and a network of 39  community-based service sites throughout Missouri, Catholic Charities is one of the leading providers of services to people in need – people of all races, ages and faiths.  In fact, more than 70 percent of those served are not Catholic.  Likewise, Catholic Charities’ employees and supporters reflect the diversity of our community.
