Encounter. Form. Transform. Converting Hearts to Inspire Action.
Our work is based on the call of the gospel—to work for the respect and dignity of all human life, the elimination of poverty, an end to injustice, and to promote the common good.
Our office ensures that its undertakings are consistent with the priorities of the Bishop of Cleveland, Catholic Charities, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic Conference of Ohio, and Catholic Charities USA.
The Diocesan Social Action Office was formed in 1969 and is composed of five regional Social Action Offices, the Office for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and Catholic Relief Services.
