87% of clients have annual household incomes below $15,000.

44% Hispanic

28% Caucasian

18% African American

10% Other – Asian, Middle Eastern, Native American

Catholic Charities prides itself on having a bilingual staff at all of its offices.

 There are more than 25 different languages spoken by the staff.

The costs to serve our clients are paid for by our funding partners:
