Catholic Charities of Louisville serves people in need, especially the poor and oppressed. Consistent with the principles of Catholic social teaching, we build bridges of hope, mercy, and justice as we accompany struggling families and individuals to greater self-sufficiency, one relationship at a time. We collaborate and advocate for necessary changes in social policy. We call the local Catholic Church and others of goodwill to engage in acts of mercy and justice. We support and resource our 110 parishes to expand this work across the Archdiocese of Louisville.
Catholic Charities of Louisville is the social-service arm of the Archdiocese of Louisville. We provide help and create hope for the poor and vulnerable through a wide range of programs, assisting clients of all races, backgrounds and beliefs. Our service area includes 24 counties throughout Central Kentucky.
Catholic Charities of Louisville was established in 1939 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) human service organization in 1993. It is one of over 160 Catholic Charities USA social service agencies in the United States.
