Mission Statement

Motivated by Christ's love, we bring hope to life, especially for those most in need.

Description

YOU ARE CATHOLIC CHARITIES. YOUR CARING AND GENEROSITY BRINGS HOPE TO LIFE FOR THOSE MOST IN NEED.

Often we are blind to the needs right here in our own communities. People hurting or struggling don’t always know where to turn for help. That is why Catholic Charities provides specialized services to people of all faiths, to make sure Central Washington families can find the support they need to bring hope back to their lives. Helping the most vulnerable among us, Catholic Charities is the compassionate face of Jesus to nearly 50,000 people throughout Central Washington each year. The challenge to serve our brothers and sisters comes from Jesus in Matthew 25: "Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me."
