Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens supports the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), a social justice program which sponsors projects that help poor and low-income people help themselves. Every year, to help break the cycle of poverty, the Diocese of Brooklyn issues grants to projects that not only address the root causes of poverty, but seek to empower the poor, the disabled, minorities, workers and immigrants. Eighty-six cents out of every dollar received by CCHD goes directly to community empowerment, economic development and education programs.
Partnerships that Promote Catholic Social Services
Our partnerships with affiliated services and organizations allow us to reach out to many more neighbors in need and work towards common goals of alleviating human suffering and uplifting families and communities.
This mission is strengthened by our work with Catholic Charities USA, as well as organizations such as Catholic Campaign for Human Development, a social justice program which sponsors projects that help poor and low-income people help themselves.
We are equally blessed to be allied with local services that many of our neighbors depend on, such as the Saints Joachim & Anne Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, a 200-bed health center providing compassionate care for the elderly and disabled. Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens is able to commit itself fully to our community through affiliated services.
Please support our vital work with a tax-deductible donation today. As one of the nation’s most efficient nonprofits, 91 cents of every dollar you give goes straight to programs like these that help our neediest neighbors.

Every year, The New York Times sponsors The Neediest Cases Fund to raise money to help seven of New York’s major non-profit agencies, including Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens. This year, the Neediest Cases Campaign ran from November 2009 through January 2010, during which The New York Times published a series of articles profiling some of the diverse people whose lives have improved thanks to the Fund and agencies like ours. Over the years, the Neediest Cases Fund has helped Catholic Charities provide for people from all walks of life. Without the continued support of The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund, thousands of New Yorkers would be without the help they so desperately need
