Catholic Charities provides hope, help and support to thousands of families each year, regardless of their faith. We serve a 15-county region with programs ranging from maternity homes, adoption services, foster care and counseling to the only homeless shelter in Central Pennsylvania that keeps families intact. Most of our services are offered at minimal or no cost to the client.
Our mission is to serve families in need in our local communities. Although the majority of our clients, staff and funding are not Catholic, our guiding beliefs are rooted in our tradition:
- We respect every human life.
- We believe in the central role of marriage and family in society.
- We are committed to providing high quality services to individuals, children, youth, married couples, families and the elderly.
Catholic Charities relies on support from individuals and corporations to help us help others. Explore our services to learn more about what we do. And find out how you can get involved in making Central Pennsylvania a better place to live.
