Catholic Charities is one of the nation's largest social service networks. Through their work, Catholic Charities agencies understand the consequences of poverty first-hand, and also know the solutions for helping individuals get on a path to self-sufficiency. Catholic Charities has launched a Campaign to Reduce Poverty in America, which is promoting public policy changes to help those living in poverty, with the goal of cutting the nation's poverty rate in half by 2020.

Catholic Charities USA's members -- more than 1,700 local agencies and institutions nationwide -- provide help and create hope for more than 7.8 million people a year regardless of religious, social, or economic backgrounds. For more than 280 years, local Catholic Charities agencies have been providing a myriad of vital services in their communities, ranging from day care and counseling to food and housing.
