About

For 115 years, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has been changing lives and building communities as it serves our neighbors in need with mercy and compassion.

We currently sponsor over 160 programs and services for children and youth, adults and seniors, persons with developmental disabilities, those who are mentally ill and the isolated. In addition, we are one of the largest faith-based provider of affordable housing in the country, with 3,600 units of housing, including 2,186 units of housing for low-income older adults, 1,068 units of family housing and 433 units of supportive housing for formerly homeless and individuals suffering mental illness or behavioral circumstances.

With the country reeling from an economic crisis, countless members of our community in Brooklyn and Queens have turned to Catholic Charities for assistance. In response, we increased our efforts to address issues of poverty and promote justice in the communities we serve, thereby empowering families and individuals to achieve greater self-sufficiency.
