Who we Are
is a place of Help
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 walk hand in hand with people to provide programs and services that address the root causes of poverty and deliver essential services.

“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.’”
