Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio seeks to SERVE the community to in turn serve the vulnerable. We serve and we invite the community to serve the poor, just as Jesus invited us to do as He washed the feet of the apostles.

We seek to ENLIGHTEN the community to see God’s love for the poor. Catholic Charities is not limited to the staff performing human services. Our larger purpose is to provide for the faithful of the Archdiocese and the community to serve the poor. Our first action is outreach to volunteers and parishes to actively participate in our programs and to both understand and live Catholic Social Doctrine.

We seek to EMPOWER the community so all God’s Children rise from spiritual and material poverty. Our serving is not aimed at enabling those who are suffering to continue in the same situation. We serve with the goal of all God’s children rising from their spiritual and material poverty. We also empower the affluent to rise from the poverty of materiality by serving others.

Catholic Charities focuses on engaging the community in our mission. This engagement is as important as providing our program services.

Catholic Charities is known for our excellent service which we provide in a loving way to serve the community with high quality programs. We are always looking to expand our services, strengthen program quality, and build community support. Services are regularly evaluated through a Continuous Quality Improvement process, and Catholic Charities is accredited through Council on Accreditation.

By empowering volunteers and benefactors, Catholic Charities shares its mission to serve the poor and vulnerable with the whole community to live in solidarity with the poor.

Catholic Charities' services are provided by qualified professionals and well-trained and vetted volunteers, all of whom go through criminal background checks and participate in Virtus, a program designed to raise awareness to protect children and vulnerable populations from abuse. Through community support from diverse sources of funding, Catholic Charities' services include mobile food pantries, mental health counseling, parenting classes, caregivers support groups, senior companions and foster grandparents volunteers, parish outreach and volunteer coordination, immigration legal services, case management and emergency assistance, health promotion, English for speakers of other languages, tutoring, job skills and computer training, and refugee resettlement services.

Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio has experienced a great deal of growth for several years, becoming the largest provider of services to immigrants and refugees in Southwestern Ohio and establishing Food for All, which serves food assistance to over 20,000 clients (duplicated) in urban and rural food deserts annually. In the area of immigration services, Catholic Charities established in 2016, an Immigration Legal Service that is led by an immigration attorney, and Su Casa Hispanic Center serves over 3000 clients annually through health fairs. Since 2015, a special emphasis has been placed on serving migrants, who are unaccompanied children and single mothers. Catholic Charities serves over 11,000 individual clients (unduplicated) annually.
