How do we measure our success?
We quantify the outcome of our efforts by the number of lives we touch and the richness of quality added to those lives. We open our doors and our hearts to every woman, man, and child that comes to us with an immediate need, without regard to their circumstances.
We serve individuals of every faith, perspective, background and ethnicity
- 2,000+ Talented Employees
- 8,000+ Dedicated Volunteers
- 80+ Vital Programs
Marvelous individuals of all faiths, ages and ethnicities, come together to improve the lives of over 160,000 individuals and families. We prepare and serve over 500,000 meals a year to people who depend on us for a daily hot meal.
Every day, at more than 80 programs at 200 locations throughout Maryland, Catholic Charities of Baltimore is there to help. Why do we do this—and much more? It’s because we really are inspired by the Gospel mandates to love, serve and teach, work for justice and to improve the lives of Marylanders in need. That is our Mission and we live it.
