Helping our community's most vulnerable with solutions that permanently improve lives
Watch our video, Paths to Hope!
Providing help. Creating hope. Serving all. It is what we do. We have been doing it in Arizona for more than 75 years. What began in 1933 to advocate for children and to serve people suffering through the Great Depression, has expanded to an array of programs serving our most vulnerable residents throughout Central and Northern Arizona.
We are one of the major social service agencies of the Diocese of Phoenix. Our mission of service is founded in Scripture: Jesus called upon his disciples to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, care for the sick, welcome the stranger, and minister to the imprisoned.
We reach out to thousands of people, regardless of their race, ethnicity, economic status, or religious affiliation, to:
- Shelter the homeless and abused
- Protect and nurture children
- Strengthen and reunify families
- Welcome and assist refugees
- Aid those in crisis, and
- Help the impoverished
Catholic Charities Community Services operates within the principles of its faith tradition and our values are based on Catholic Social Teaching. While we do not provide services that are contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church, we respect the religious beliefs and values of all clients, staff and volunteers. We welcome employees, volunteers and clients regardless of background or religion.
