Welcome to Catholic Charities - Central California

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



Our clients throughout the county of Merced struggle with a myriad of issues including the reality of poverty, domestic violence, homelessness and mental illnesses. Our goal is to help, victims of abuse find freedom through community resources and feed those who need stability. In addition, we provide financial management by partnering with the Department of Social Security within our payee services. We stand ready and, indeed, look forward to meeting the many challenges of the future. Mostly, we look forward to providing a caring hand to the many poor and vulnerable people who come to our doors every day.
