The Mission of Catholic Charities

Our Mission Statement

Homeless Little Girl"As the charitable arm of the Archdiocese of Denver, and inspired by God’s love and compassion, Catholic Charities extends the healing ministry of Jesus Christ to the poor and those in need."

Who Are We

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver has been serving Northern Colorado since 1927.

We serve thousands of people each year in three interlocking areas: Women’s Services, Family and Child Care Services, and Housing and Shelter Services. Catholic We are also a first responder in disaster relief services, such as the 2013 floods in northern Colorado.

Catholic Charities is open to, and serves, all people. Hundreds of volunteers donate their time and talent to Catholic Charities. We collaborate with Catholic parishes, local businesses, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, medical facilities and educational institutions.

How We Help

  • We alleviate suffering of those in crisis by feeding the hungry and providing shelter to the homeless, preventing evictions and utility shutoffs for those at risk of homelessness, and providing case management and referrals to preserve and promote self-sufficiency.

  • We preserve and protect the dignity and well-being of the poor and vulnerable by helping seniors live independently and protecting them from isolation, by providing assistance to victims of crime, legal assistance and advocacy to immigrants, mental health services, early childhood education, and intensive case management to foster self-sufficiency.

  • We provide safety and permanency for children by preventing neglect and abuse and by supporting families that open their home to children in need of safety. Through pregnancy counseling, birth parent counseling, adoptions, foster care, and kinship care, we promote the sanctity of life and the general welfare of the unborn and young people among us, as well as the guardians who care for them.
