For over 85 years, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Stockton has provided social services to people in San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Alpine, and Mono counties. We believe in the inherent dignity of each person and create services that support families and enhance the quality of life for all members of the community regardless of race, age, or religion.
Today, Catholic Charities administers direct social services and advocacy through a variety of programs for the most vulnerable and under represented citizens of our communities.
While we serve the Diocese of Stockton region, we are not directly funded by the Diocese or the Parishes associated with the Diocese of Stockton. As a 501(c)3 non-profit our programs and services are funded through grants, foundations, and the generosity of our communities.
We make a living by what we get.
We make a life by what we give!
Catholic Charities partners with others in advocating for justice and in assisting those in need by providing help for today and hope for tomorrow.
In accordance with Catholic Social Teaching, Catholic Charities commits to providing advocacy and social services that maintain and expand the social safety net for families and individuals. Catholic Charities envisions that the dignity of each person is upheld and poverty is reduced as Catholic Charities responds in concert with collaborating partners in the region of the Diocese of Stockton.
