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) seeks to integrate health services into affordable housing properties that promote long-term household stability—and ultimately, educational and economic opportunity
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.
