Catholic Charities agencies across the country witness to the love of Christ by helping people in need and by serving their communities. Catholic Charities USA is a national organization that offers support to member agencies, provides disaster relief and promotes poverty-reduction through research and legislative reform.
Catholic Charities USA is located in Alexandria, Virginia, and serves as the national representative of the entire Catholic Charities network located across the country. Our office is located within a 15-minute walk of the King Street-Old Town Metrorail system in old town Alexandria.
Local Catholic Charities agencies are located in communities across the country, going directly to where their work will be most helpful and have the most impact to serve those in need. Each one of the more than 160 Catholic Charities agencies nationwide is guided by their diocesan leadership and provides responsive solutions to the unique needs of their local community.
Catholic Charities USA and its member agencies are looking for individuals of good will to join the more than 60,000 staff already working to provide help and create hope for the 45 million individuals living in poverty in America.
Whether it's supporting our network on the national level or working as program staff at a local agency, the mission of Catholic Charities is to serve others as Christ calls us - meeting the needs of people left out or excluded, advocating for justice and inviting other people of good will to join with us. – less
