Catholic Charities of the East Bay helps families in need rise above poverty and live self-sufficient lives.
The Catholic Church is the largest provider of social services throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, and Catholic Charities is the visible face of the diocese in that work. Founded in 1935, we are devoted to providing social services and advocacy to the working poor and underserved in Alameda and Contra Costa County. We are rooted in the belief that a strong family is the foundation of a moral vision for society.
