our services

We annually assist 1 million people in Cook and Lake counties

Whether our clients are young or old, hungry or addicted, homeless or friendless, Catholic Charities walks with them, bringing help and hope. With 150 programs at 153 locations throughout Cook and Lake counties, we serve virtually every neighborhood and parish in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs.

Our broad spectrum of services help people from birth to end-of-life. We keep mothers and their babies well-fed, prepare children in low-income families for school, keep youth in school and out of gangs, counsel and give job training to adults with economic troubles, provide affordable housing for seniors, and organize in-home care services for seniors who need help caring for themselves.
