Supporting neighbors. Transforming lives.

Catholic Charities of Denver is one of the largest and most effective social service organizations in Colorado, founded in 1927. We serve tens of thousands of people in crisis annually. We offer shelter, affordable housing, early childhood education, counseling, emergency services, rent and utilities, employment, food and clothing, case management, family and senior services and much more. We collaborate with corporate partners, local businesses, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, medical facilities, educational institutions, parishes and other community partners. We work to alleviate and find solutions to some of the most pressing challenges that women, men and families in our community face each day.

WHO WE SERVE

We serve neighbors in need.

- Matthew 25:35-36 encourages us:

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.

  • Are you hungry?
  • Are you tired?
  • Are you cold?
  • Are you sick?
  • Do you need comfort?
  • Do you need a place to sleep?
If a neighbor answers “yes” to any of these questions, we offer support.

OUR VOCATION IS THE LOVE OF JESUS."
