"Poverty calls us to sow hope. Poverty is the flesh of the poor Jesus, in that child who is hungry, in the one who is sick." -- Pope Francis

Catholic Charities challenges poverty, counsels immigrants, and cares for seniors with the help of our generous donors. We serve as the social service arm of the Diocese of Santa Rosa, which includes Sonoma, Napa, Lake, Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte counties. While we are rooted in Catholic values, our services are available to all without regard to religious affiliation.
