For 60 years, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County has worked to strengthen families and build economic self-sufficiency for the poor and vulnerable in the county. Each year, more than 500 employees and 1000 volunteers serve more than 54,000 individuals of all cultures and beliefs through a broad base of programs including housing services, job skills training and placement, older adult services, mental health, financial education, immigration legal services, refugee foster care, youth and family services and education.
Our compassion and commitment extend beyond direct service to those in need, and compel us to address the root causes of poverty in Santa Clara County through our social policy education and advocacy efforts.
Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County is affiliated with the Diocese of San Jose, as its social service arm, and works with parishes to build partnerships and increase their capacity for service. However, the agency is separately incorporated, is self-funded and operates as an independent nonprofit organization with a CEO, Board of Directors, and separate financial structure. Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County is a member of Catholic Charities USA, the nation’s largest social services network.
