Catholic Charities

Welcome to Catholic Charities - Central California

We are here to empower the people of the San Joaquin Valley


Respecting the presence of God among us we serve, advocate for and empower those in need.



Catholic Charities is a Community Benefit Organization serving the needs of those in crisis. We are the first responders in helping our neighbors with food, clothing, and other basic necessities.
