About Us
Call to Charity


My name is Amparo García, and I am the interim CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver. I have been a board member of Catholic Charities since mid-2017 and am blessed to be of service in this time of transition. Larry Smith, the former president and CEO, has been a fantastic leader over the past five years and we are grateful for his service. His impact on our community was significant, and he will be greatly missed.

To be charitable is to love unconditionally, to help those in need who come to us for support. We at Catholic Charities value each person as an individual, regardless of circumstances. I have much respect for all who work at Catholic Charities, and for all those who donate their time, treasure and talent in service to those in the greatest need.

The mission of Catholic Charities is lived out through its seven ministries to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ: Seven Ministries, One Purpose, To Serve All People.

A little about me. I was born in Denver and raised in Brighton. I graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder and went on to receive an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I moved back to Colorado in 2010 and am a parishioner at Holy Ghost Church, where I am a lector and member of the choir.

I am here at Catholic Charities, as interim, by the grace of God. My aim is to allow the Holy Spirit to work through me, to keep the momentum of the wonderful works of Catholic Charities moving forward so we may continue to serve our community, the poorest of the poor and those in need.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Catholic Charities.

The Lord Bless You and Keep You,
