As one of the largest comprehensive health and human services organizations in the region, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland carries out Christ’s healing mission here in Northeast Ohio.
Along with our sister ministries of St. Augustine and Rose-Mary, Catholic Charities delivers more than 150 services at 60 locations to over 400,000 individuals each year – providing help and creating hope for people of every race and religion throughout the eight counties in the Diocese of Cleveland (Ashland, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Summit, and Wayne).
Family and Community Services
Whether the need is a loving home for foster care or help with substance abuse, Catholic Charities provides an integrated system of services to children and families. Including early learning centers and Head Start programs with early childhood educated staff, parenting classes, job placement training, and mental health counseling.
Persons with Disabilities
Catholic Charities provides services to children and adults with disabilities, enabling them to live to their fullest potential. Social and recreational activities, such as summer and day camp and monthly dances, provide opportunities for enrichment. Life skills training and in-home personal care help meet the challenges and triumphs of living independently.
Whether they are the working poor or unemployed and homeless, the number of people with emergency and transitional needs continue to grow. Grounded in Catholic social teaching, Catholic Charities is motivated to assist those with the most basic needs of food and shelter but strives to help move people beyond permanent crisis.
Elderly and Chronically Ill
Catholic Charities works with seniors to ensure they maintain their dignity of life with attention to emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Catholic Charities offers a range of living options – from independent living to skilled nursing care, home visits, meal delivery, transportation services, and adult day activities. Catholic Charities’ hospice service extends its quality of care, compassion, and support for those who enter life’s final journey.
Treatment, Prevention, and Recovery Services
Catholic Charities provides a comprehensive system of services designed specifically for the mental health and chemical dependency needs of children, youth, and adults. Many services are offered by bilingual, bi-cultural staff to serve the Hispanic community specifically. We offer programs at multiple locations in Cuyahoga County.
Parish & Community Outreach
Catholic Charities works in partnership with parishes, community organizations, and other Diocesan offices to provide education, formation and training activities, and direct services to individuals and families. Including youth, older adults, persons with disabilities, vulnerable populations, refugees, and immigrants.
Catholic Charities advocates for the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized of our society. Through the Diocesan Offices of Social Action and Human Life, we can educate, minister, train, and serve our communities to create meaningful change.

Because St. Elizabeth’s dedication to the poor, the sick, and the homeless so closely exemplifies the work of Catholic Charities, we chose her to be our patroness saint.
