Our Answer Is Simple – and Substantial

Our vision for your gifts is simple. 
We use your gifts to help our New York neighbors as we would want our families helped if they were in need. 

And our vision for your gifts is substantial. 
Rather than simply answering immediate needs, we use your gifts to empower those we serve by offering tools that foster independence.

Since 1917, Catholic Charities of New York has stood at the forefront helping solve the problems of New Yorkers in need, non-Catholics and Catholics alike.

In any given year we:

  • Involve more than 55,000 children in afterschool programs and wholesome sports. 
  • Feed more than 5.1 million meals to hungry New Yorkers and
  • Intervene to keep tens of thousands of children, parents and individuals from becoming homeless. 
  • Provide counseling, emergency assistance, training and resources to more than 90,000 families in crisis
  • Offer early intervention, substance abuse and mental health treatment along with adaptive training for to more than 43,000 physically and emotionally challenged children and adults including the visually and hearing impaired. 
  • Welcome, integrate and provide legal and employment support to close to 70,000 new Americans who came to our shores seeking safety and opportunity.

In every season throughout the year, Catholic Charities serves the poor and vulnerable throughout the Archdiocese of New York.

Now, as housing prices skyrocket and entry-level wages stagnate, your gifts help us provide help, create hope and meet the growing demand.


Catholic Charities is responding to the needs of our neighbors during the 
COVID-19 pandemic.
