Providing Help, Creating Hope since 1903.

A Tradition of Compassionate Care
Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark exists to advance a mission of justice and compassionate care. We trace the pursuit of our mission in Essex, Hudson, Union, and Bergen counties to the scriptures and the prophets' cries for justice for the widows, orphans, and strangers among us.

Catholic Charities was created as a witness to the scriptural commands to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and give hope to those in need. Faith in Jesus Christ puts the Christian in communion with Him and His teachings about our obligations to assist and protect the weak and vulnerable. We commit ourselves to respect the dignity of others and their right to a decent standard of living, their right to be educated, and their right to live in peace and freedom. Through the work of our staff and volunteers, we strive to enhance the freedom of every man, woman, and child we serve, helping them to live their lives as fully as possible.

Catholic Charities' programs serve the very young, the very old, and all in between. We seek to provide the necessities of life to the homeless, the blessings of liberty to immigrants, and the restoration of right relationships within families and within society. We seek to provide a life with meaning to the disabled, isolated, and lonely; a safety net to those in crisis; the hope of economic participation to the marginalized and unemployed; and opportunities for the growth and development of children and youth.

Love in pursuit of freedom is at the heart of all we do at Catholic Charities. Every day we deal with the realities of human existence. Through partnerships with the people we serve, we empower them to pursue their personal call to freedom. More than just providing services, more than merely acting out of charitable motivations, we work to build the human assets of our community and, in so doing, to promote a just society.
