Who we Are

Catholic Charities
is a place of Help
and Hope.

Providing Help.  Creating Hope.

As the charitable arm of the Diocese of Colorado Springs, families and individuals come to Catholic Charities to begin their journey from crisis to stability, to weather the current storm, or to heal a broken spirit.

Through our faith, our staff and volunteers guide those we serve with compassion and purpose, helping map out the journey based upon realistic goals and abilities, utilizing Catholic Charities’ programs and services, partner agencies, and community collaborations.  At our core, we understand that every connection has the potential to empower and uplift, to breathe life into aspirations and dreams.  Through these bonds, lives are impacted and transformed.

Catholic Charities serves anyone in need regardless of religion, race, gender, age, disability, socioeconomic level, sexual orientation, or background.

We believe relationships empower and transform lives – that people who are experiencing poverty and injustice should be “seen” and served.

Our Mission
& Values

In response to Jesus Christ’s call to affirm the value and dignity of each human life, to build solidarity within the community, and to advocate for justice for the poor and vulnerable, Catholic Charities of Central Colorado humbly engages in the ministry of charity for those in both economic and spiritual poverty so that all – staff, volunteers, and clients – may fully achieve their God-given potential.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.

And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’”
