There’s something greater in us all.

Greater Promise | the Campaign for Catholic Charities

As Catholic Charities approaches its 100th anniversary, we are presented with an opportunity to both reflect on our tremendous contributions to the community, and also take a deep, honest look inside to ask ourselves— how can we do more? Greater Promise is a vow to help the community live up to its full potential. To bring out the best in each other. To continue to see everyone’s inherent value. To not only meet people where they are in life, but to help them find a better way forward. As we call ourselves to do more, we call for the support of our community now more than ever to help realize a greater promise. To be more, together.

Giving our community access to the support it needs will create healthier schools, businesses, families, and individuals, ensuring we can all fulfill our Greater Promise.

Cherry Hill Town Center

Investing in a revitalized town center designed by the community, for the community will give Cherry Hill access to vital businesses in an area that has long been overlooked. We’re spearheading a multi-phase project that includes renovating the building’s façade, welcoming the neighborhood’s first bank, and turning 4,400 square feet of retail space into a hub for local entrepreneurs, fresh food purveyors and meeting space. This project is the result of an in-depth collaborative effort with the community of Cherry Hill and we need support from donors to help make this project reach its full potential.

Community Center

Our mission is to open doors to a fuller life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. And now, we need a space that is more conducive to the warm, inviting nature that our clients deserve. Our commitment to person-centered planning and community integration will require a host of changes, including more staff and vehicles, more training, more technology, and a powerful advocacy effort. Over time, we envision this center as the start of something bigger – a place for intergenerational programming will serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and bring us all together.

Program Overview

Intergenerational Center

The Intergenerational Center is a big dream that requires a visionary commitment. It is the largest initiative of our Greater Promise Campaign and we need your help in making it a reality. The Intergenerational Center will be located in West Baltimore, an area where we already offer many services and have an existing neighborhood partnership, through Head Start and our food & training services out of St. Edward’s. The Center will provide a platform to deliver a range of services for the entire family in one central, state-of-the art facility. We envision it as a community hub that provides a continuum of support for children, adults, families and seniors.
