Catholic Charities


The Mission of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Monterey is to provide service to people in need, to advocate for social justice, and to call other people of good will to do the same.

The Big Idea

For 39 years, Catholic Charities has been in the forefront in responding to emerging community needs. We are committed to reducing poverty for all regardless of their background and beliefs. We serve low-income individuals and families facing economic hardships from job losses, natural and human disasters and other unforeseen situations. Our programs ensure that families have food on their tables, ability to remain in their homes, and rebuild their financial stability. Our work was made even more critical during the recent winter storms. Our disaster teams were at various flood zones, knocking on doors, talking to residents, providing aid and providing long-term support.
Our BIG IDEA is to continue supporting people in need who are the most vulnerable, such as agricultural workers who need direct financial assistance for rent, utilities, and basic needs. We also assist our clients with applications to health and food programs, immigration services, and community resources.

I knew Catholic Charities has compassionate workers who care and could help… Now I have hope that everything will be okay. I don’t have to worry about keeping my apartment while taking care of my family.
