How We Address Critical Needs of the Most Vulnerable
Food & Nutrition
Catholic Charities believes that access to proper nutrition, that is balanced and culturally appropriate, is a basic human right. CCUSA supports our Catholic Charities agencies both through advocacy and education; assisting our network to take full advantage of food support programs and grant opportunities.
CCUSA believes that every person deserves a place to call home. The Healthy Housing Initiative (HHI) was launched to bridge the divide that too often exists between health services providers and social services agencies working with the chronically homeless.
Catholic Charities relief efforts begin with the immediate needs of survivors. Efforts continue, sometimes for years, with long-term assistance that helps individuals and families rebuild their lives.
CCUSA is at the forefront of supporting innovative programs to ensure people have the resources they need to reach self-sufficiency. Social enterprises are a dynamic alternative to the traditional job training model as they work to fulfill community needs.
For over 109 years, Catholic Charities has been helping families overcome poverty.
