WHY WE DO IT
We are committed to supporting each person's Integral Human Development
Catholic Charities believes that access to equitable and affordable health care is a basic human right.

Facilitate recovery from addiction
We are committed to supporting each person’s integral human development, meaning one’s physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Even though the demand for behavioral health services far exceeds the country's capacity, Catholic Charities agencies continue to build on our long history of service provision by providing evidence-based, strengths-focused, affordable, and low-barrier behavioral health services for anyone in need, with a particular focus on the poor and vulnerable.
