About

Who We Are

Since 1976, Catholic Charities has fed the hungry, consoled the hurting, cared for the young, always providing help and creating hope for the people of Orange County, regardless of religion, ethnicity, culture or age.  One person or one family at a time, we do everything we can for those in need with what is given to us. 

Mission Statement

The mission of Catholic Charities of Orange County is to provide service to people in need, to promote their voice in society, and to call the church and all people to do the same.

Vision Statement

Catholic Charities of Orange County will be a center of excellence in providing quality services to those in need, increasing the dignity of those served.

HERE AT CATHOLIC CHARITIES, WE LIVE OUT OUR MISSION IN THREE DISTINCT WAYS:

  • We provide quality professional social services to individuals and families to transform hopelessness and despair into self-reliance and optimism.
  • We advocate for justice and respect to transform social structures so that human dignity, reverence for family life and community well-being are embraced.
  • We expand knowledge, providing education and resources to assist Catholic parishes to live out the Gospel’s call to practice works of charity and justice.
