OUR MISSION & PHILOSOPHY

The mission of Catholic Charities Refugee Services is to help our clients become self-sufficient as soon as possible. It is our obligation to welcome all newcomers to our land regardless of gender, race, creed, or national origin and to lift them out of oppression and empower them with the tools necessary to succeed in their new land. Today, we at Catholic Charities Refugee Services are more committed than ever before to our mission of "welcoming the stranger" into our community.

We seek to serve with compassion and provide a supportive environment in which the dignity of each person is respected and the culture of each celebrated. We believe that that the empowerment process mandates that we address the needs of the body, mind, and spirit of each of our clients. We always recognize that our clients are resilient and capable individuals with extensive personal life experiences and that we are simply providing the tools by which these individuals will achieve independence in their new lives in America.

Thanksgiving Care Bags Project

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the abundance of God’s many blessings in our lives. It is also a time to recognize those among us who struggle with poverty and may not have a home to share God’s love.

This Thanksgiving, Catholic Charities asks you to come together with your loved ones to assemble meaningful Care Bags right in your own home. Your Care Bags will be distributed to those in need throughout the Diocese through our “Mobile Response Center Vehicle.” We appreciate your prayers and your support!

For more information, contact Sally O’Dwyer at sodwyer@ccda.net.
