Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) was founded in 1910 as the National Conference of Catholic Charities (its name was changed in 1986) and is the largest private network of social service organizations in the United States. As the national office for 164 member agencies, CCUSA offers support to the Catholic Charities ministry throughout the country, provides disaster relief, and promotes poverty-reduction through research and legislative reform. CCUSA’s diocesan member agencies and affiliated ministries operate 2598 service sites in 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories.

The mission of Catholic Charities is to provide service to people in need, to advocate for justice in social structures, and to call the entire Church and other people of good will to do the same.

CCUSA member agencies provide a wide array of programs, including services in the following areas: pregnancy support and adoption; affordable housing; immigration and refugee support; integrated health and nutrition; leadership development; disaster resilience and recovery; social enterprise initiatives; and advocacy and social policy initiatives.

CCUSA is headquartered in Alexandria, VA., across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The staff of CCUSA are committed to supporting the more than 65 000 employees and 300 000 volunteers of the member agencies across the U.S. CCUSA assists the agencies through workshops and trainings concerning the management of social service programs and organizations; strengthening Catholic identity and parish engagement; building up leadership and organizational capacity; and fortifying disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.
