Catholic Charities Community Services

Not for Profit - Charitable

Toward the end of the Great Depression in 1933, Catholic Charities opened an office in downtown Phoenix with our first director, Eileen Ward, advocating for vulnerable children.

Over the years, Catholic Charities staff and volunteers continued to monitor the needs of central and northern Arizona communities and responded by providing life-changing services that protect and nurture children, help strengthen families and assist individuals in crisis - growing to serve communities in Maricopa, Yavapai, Coconino and Mohave Counties.

We continue the thread of our early work today by delivering services in foster care, adoption and pregnancy counseling, North Star youth development and Westside Head Start early education. Over the years in response to community needs, our agency has grown to serve veterans and their families, sex-trafficked survivors, victims of domestic abuse, refugees and those experiencing homelessness.

Our Values

Catholic Charities Community Services operates within the principles of its faith tradition and our values are based on Catholic Social Teaching. While we do not provide services that are contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church, we respect the religious beliefs and values of all clients, staff and volunteers. We welcome employees, volunteers and clients regardless of background or religion.
