Mission Statement

Catholic Family Center seeks to empower individuals and families, and uphold personal dignity, by working to eliminate obstacles that impede people from realizing their full potential. Our values, rooted in Scripture and Catholic social teaching, lead us to respect every individual in all stages of human development and conditions of life. With a spirit of compassion and professionalism we offer all people, especially the poor, a diversity of human services and advocacy in Greater Rochester and surrounding communities.


Catholic Family Center (CFC) provides human services to more than 60,000 people a year in Greater Rochester and surrounding communities from 17 locations. CFC serves all people regardless of their background, religious affiliation or ability to pay but places a special emphasis on serving the poor. CFC services, designed to uphold individual and family dignity while helping people to achieve independence, are delivered through 60 programs. These include: transportation, case management, referral and nutrition services for the elderly; adoption and foster care placement, prevention, pregnancy counseling, early intervention and emergency services to children and families; substance abuse treatment services including residential and outpatient programs for men, women, pregnant women, women with children and Hispanic people; job readiness training for women in recovery; transitional housing and family reunification services; refugee resettlement and immigration services; employment services; emergency and transitional housing for homeless men, women and women with children; counseling services; youth services including abstinence education, athletics, job readiness and personal skills training; social issue research and analysis, community organizing and client advocacy.
