Rejoicing in Success
Psalm 118 tells us “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad.” Here are just a few reasons to rejoice in the success of Catholic Charities today.

Who is Taking Care of You?
You can’t give what you don’t have. So what happens when you are burnt out, tired, and stressed? Our Welcome Center explores self-care as the necessary first step to caring for others.
Integrating the Deaf & Disabled
Nearly one in five Americans has a disability. Our Deaf & Disability Ministries can help pastors and parishes fully integrate these individuals into the faith community.  
The Perfect Storm
This is the final installment in our series. We’ll take a look at the effects of prison life on the brain and how our employment specialists go far beyond simply filling a job.
Q & A with a Veteran Outreach Specialist
Eleven percent of homeless people in America are veterans. This statistic drives Toya Jenkins and our Veteran Services team to continually conduct outreach, seeking homeless veterans and ensuring they are aware of all the resources available.
Happy feast day of St. Vincent DePaul
On this feast day of St. Vincent DePaul, the patron saint of charities, we know the poor are not too far from us and when we go to them, we find God.
