Each year the staff and volunteers of Catholic Charities uplift and transform the lives of  children in need, families in crisis, vulnerable adults and seniors, refugees, the poor, and the unborn— regardless of their age, faith tradition, ethnic background, or ability to pay. Because of your compassionate generosity those in need reach their full potential. In fiscal year 2016, Catholic Charities served over 4509 persons living in over 2035 households. Of those households where the annual income was known, 59% of them had incomes at or below $25,000.
