Community Development & Advocacy
Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County strives to create a more just and compassionate community. We work to improve community conditions by partnering with local parishes, the Knights of Columbus and others. Through these partnerships, we empower people to get involved in our community, from serving lunch to needy seniors to advocating for key social justice issues. A major focus of this work is our Campaign to Cut Poverty. We are leading a coalition of community-based organizations, interfaith allies, government representatives, and business leaders who are working to cut poverty in half in Santa Clara County by 2020.
