National Nonprofit Day 2022

Posted August 17, 2022

National Nonprofit Day 2022

In the United States, nonprofits have been around since the mid-1800s. Since then, philanthropy and nonprofit organizations have been growing tremendously trying to help make a difference in people’s lives.

Catholic Charities first made its appearance in March of 1912 when Father Charles LeBlond opened the first office at East 9thand Prospect.

In the beginning, Catholic Charities consisted of four orphanages, five homes for the needy, and nine Catholic hospitals.

Now, Catholic Charities offers more than 150 services in behavioral health and community services for children and families, older adults, persons with disabilities, individuals needing emergency assistance, services to immigrants and refugees, and parish partnership programs such as the Diocesan Social Action Office and CYO.

We serve over 400,000 individuals a year regardless of their faith affiliation.

To celebrate National Nonprofit Day, Catholic Charities would like to recognize some of the nonprofits that help us serve you!
