Today, Catholic Charities is the leading provider of human services in Maryland, consisting of 80 programs which strive to improve the lives of individuals and families suffering the impact of poverty, children and their families in crisis, the frail, elderly in need of housing and care and those with developmental disabilities. Our innovative and effective programs address an array of needs, which have increased in both scope and complexity over the last several years due to the recession. Last year alone, we answered 600,000 requests for emergency assistance, serving people of all faiths, races and ethnicities with dignity.
Catholic Charities’ employees and volunteers strive every day to ensure dignity and encourage hope for thousands of people in Baltimore City and nine counties of Central and Western Maryland. Catholic Charities is seeking the support of the United Way to help the most vulnerable among us to regain their dignity, their independence, and their hope.
Catholic Charities has 80 programs throughout the archdiocese that touch the lives of 160,000 people and their families—children, seniors, people suffering from poverty and those living with developmental disabilities. We cherish the Divine within everyone who comes to us for assistance.
