A Movement to Improve Lives.

I Need Help Now

Caring for people. Valuing lives. Strengthening communities.

We believe that seeing the inherent value of every individual is a call to action - a call to help others - to give of ourselves - and to love. Every day, at our 80 programs across 200 locations throughout Maryland, Catholic Charities of Baltimore serves children and families, immigrants, individuals with intellectual disabilities, people living in poverty and seniors, filling both immediate needs and providing longer-term support that encourages independence.

Independence

Poverty relief and housing assistance for many individuals.

Through a variety of programs across Maryland, we assist people who are struggling to make ends meet and striving to work their way out of poverty. With programs that include a range of transitional housing services, meal programs, education, employment and counseling services, and referrals to other support services, our goal is to enable families and individuals to fully achieve financial independence.
