HOPE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE’S LIFE.

Involvement

Catholic Charities is the social service outreach arm of the Catholic Church.  While the Church does not fund our operations, the Diocese of Yakima ensures our programs and services support the Catholic mission of serving communities and individuals in need.  In addition to grant funding and the Annual Christmas Collection for Catholic Charities, we rely on the generosity of our donors to provide their time, treasures, and talents to fulfill our mission of bringing hope to life, especially for those most in need.  Please consider how you can best support Catholic Charities in your local community.
