Catholic Charities of St. Louis has been helping people in need since 1912, and is one of the largest providers of social services in the state of Missouri. Our family of eight agencies are supported by the Catholic Charities Central Office, and together our services impacted more than 107,000 in 2019. Catholic Charities serves the 11 counties of the St. Louis Archdiocese.
Catholic Charities serves a wide range of people: children who suffer from abuse and neglect, adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness; women who are abused; parents, individuals, and children requiring counseling; people struggling as the result of substance use disorders; older adults in need of assistance with daily living; and many more.
The goal is clear. Catholic Charities seeks to break the cycles of poverty, abuse and neglect, empower people to make permanent changes in their lives and support people to lead self-sufficient, dignified lives.
