Catholic Charities: Because of You - Our Impact

Catholic Charities' mission, for over 100 years, has been to provide help, create hope, and serve all people of every race and religion throughout the eight counties in the Diocese of Cleveland. 


Hispanic Services: Impacting Your Neighbors

Free alcohol & other drug prevention education for children and youth is available at Cleveland schools, community organizations and through our offices at the Covenant Center. We also provide non-intensive outpatient drug and alcohol treatment services to Hispanic youth in Cuyahoga County. In addition, The Hispanic Senior Center offers recreational and socialization activities for older Hispanic adults, while focusing on the cultural and linguistic needs of seniors within Greater Cleveland's Hispanic community. And, in Lake County our Hispanic Outreach program serves individuals, families and groups who are experiencing a variety of stressors adjusting to life in our communities.


Hungry & Homeless: Making an Impact

Thousands of people rely on Catholic Charities each year for basic necessities such as food and shelter. Our Emergency Assistance Services sites and programs collaborate with local organizations, public and private agencies, and religious institutions to ensure the basic needs of the most vulnerable in our communities are met. We work to provide food, shelter, and clothing to individuals in need, and currently offer support in Ashland, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Summit and Wayne counties. Catholic Charities has 28 food banks and 17 hot meal programs across Northeast Ohio that served 273,449 individuals last year.


Older Adult Services: Making a Difference

At Catholic Charities we strive to help individuals grow and thrive—from youth all the way to those in their late stages of life. We offer a variety of Older Adult Services designed to best meet the needs of seniors and older individuals. From adult day programs and senior case management to home-delivered meal services, our broad spectrum of programs serve all individuals regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, disability, or ability to pay.
