Mission

Inspired by Jesus Christ, we serve people in need, work to improve social conditions, and unite with others in this mission.

Catholic Charities of St. Louis has been helping people in need since 1912. Organized as eight ministries, Catholic Charities services impacted over 96,000 last year. Catholic Charities serves 11 counties in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

The Catholic Charities Ministry Office provides advocacy, centralized administration, accreditation, human resources, communications, quality assurance, and fund development for the eight organizations that make up the Catholic Charities Federation.

Catholic Charities serves a wide range of people: children who are dependent, abused, and neglected; adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness; women who are abused; parents and children requiring family counseling; people struggling as the result of substance use disorders; older adults with special needs; and many more.
