Advocacy and Community Engagement

Poverty is an every day reality experienced by hundreds of thousands of Santa Clara County residents. Catholic Charities' Advocacy and Community Engagement addresses these needs by engaging those directly affected by poverty in changing the structures of economic and social disenfranchisement through public engagement by forming strategic partnerships with parishes, social action groups and community organizers.
