Mission

Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County serves and advocates for families and individuals in need, especially those living in poverty. Rooted in gospel values, we work to create a more just and compassionate community in which people of all cultures and beliefs can participate. We imagine a Valley where every child has the opportunity to learn from cradle to career and lives in a neighborhood free from fear, where families can afford to live in safe and decent housing and eat nutritious food, where enterprising workers can earn enough to make ends meet and save for the future, where immigrants and refugees are welcomed, and where those who are imprisoned, physically and mentally ill, elderly and vulnerable can find healing and hope. Catholic Charities changes lives for good.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Youth & Family Services, Behavioral Health, Economic Security, Housing Support, Disaster Relief

Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County provides a critical safety net for disadvantaged and underserved individuals and families excluded from the prosperity of Silicon Valley. Our programs address the multi-dimensional causes of poverty and provide pathways to self-sufficiency that address food insecurity; disaster recovery; safe and affordable housing; mental and physical health; economic security and employment; and educational support to grades pre-K through 8th. Beyond providing direct emergency services, we are fighting the root causes of poverty in Santa Clara County through social policy education and advocacy. While our agency is the social justice and services arm of the Diocese of San Jose, we serve people of all cultures and beliefs.

We have improved and changed the lives of over 1.2 million people - including children and youth, elderly and homeless adults, refugees and immigrants, and incarcerated individuals - since our founding in 1955.
