OVERVIEW OF CATHOLIC CHARITIES

Catholic Charities is charged by the Diocese of Beaumont to defend and insure the preservation of human dignity. Inspired by the social teachings of the Church, we strive to improve the lives of those individuals and families who utilize our services, by recognizing and addressing the evolving needs of our society. It is our vision to achieve a universal community that is stronger physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, willing and empowered to care for the needs of all its members.

Catholic Charities currently operates seven programs:

Our success in Providing Help and Creating Hope is contingent on the strength of our volunteer program, as well as financial support from contractual agreements, the Diocese of Beaumont and other dioceses, fellow Catholic Charities agencies, local businesses, generous foundations and caring individuals.  We are humbled by our ability to assist our community through the efforts of our supporters. Together with our supporters, we strive to MakeSoutheast Texas a better place to live.

Religious Liberty & Service to All

Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas is pleased to reflect the moral values of the Catholic Church in its services. Yet, in keeping with Catholic social principles, Catholic Charities shows no preference for any particular religion when serving those in need.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has expressed grave reservations about threats to religious liberty emerging in America that could compromise the value-based services of institutions like Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas.

We invite you to take a few minutes to review the bishops' concerns regarding religious freedom and lend your voice of support and your prayers to the chorus of those asking God and national leaders to help our nation remain faithful to its heritage. Thank you!
