Catholic Charities puts faith into action to serve the most vulnerable in our community, advocating for justice, human dignity and quality of life, while reflecting the compassion of God in Christ.
Welcome to Catholic Charities Bureau, Inc.
During the November 18, 2018 Mass for the Second World Day of the Poor, Pope
Francis challenged us:
“As believers, we must stretch out our hands, as Jesus does with us. The cry of the poor finds a hearing with God. Yet I ask, does it with us? Do we have eyes to see, ears to hear, hands outstretched to offer help? Or do we keep repeating: ‘Come back tomorrow?’ Christ asks us to recognize him in all those who are hungry and thirsty, in the stranger and those stripped of dignity, in the sick and those in prison (cf. Mt 25:35-36).”
Catholic Charities has and always will say “yes” to those in need and we remain committed to doing our best each and every day to make a difference for those who come our way. Together, each day, we reinvest in the good work that we do, one individual at a time, thousands of times. Each day, we take another step in that walk with others toward something brighter. Because here, at Catholic Charities Bureau, Inc.
we have no doubt that “it is in giving that we receive”.
I am inspired by and grateful for passion, dedication and commitment of our staff, donors and volunteers to our work and mission. I am humbled to walk with all of you on this journey and together we are more determined than ever to stand firm with you in living our values to love, serve, teach, and work for justice – every day, for every person, in every community we serve.
Thank you for your support to our agency and to the individuals and families we serve. All donations to Catholic Charities are used just as designated, to take care of the most
vulnerable, disenfranchised, and forgotten in our midst. We serve the poorest of the poor. We are often the last resort and will continue to count on our faithful friends throughout the Diocese of St. Augustine, for their generosity.
Sincerely in Christ,

It was a cold and cloudy day in November when a late afternoon phone call startled Theresa and broke her away from the pile of paperwork on her desk. She picked up the phone and said "Hi, I am Theresa with Caring Choices how can I help you?”
