Catholic Charities is the social service organization of the Archdiocese of Dubuque that responds to changing social needs in order to provide help and create hope for the most poor and vulnerable. We help anyone in need, regardless of faith or background, and believe that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
Our mission is to reduce poverty, strengthen families and empower communities in the 30 most northeast counties of Iowa.
“As my mother's caretaker, I was left homeless when she passed away, and unable to work due to health issues. I remember my mom saying, "if you ever need help, go to Catholic Charities," and that is what I did. That's where I found an advocate who helped me find an apartment and secure donated furniture. My daughter is happy, there is food on our table, and I feel blessed.”
