Catholic Charities has a presence in Fresno, Bakersfield, and Merced, each with their own social media pages. Follow us to:

  • Discover resources available to those in need across the Central Valley.

Together, we can build a stronger online presence and ensure critical support reaches underserved communities.


Our Fresno location is our oldest site and has been serving families in need since 1958. We are centrally located between Downtown Fresno and Fresno’s Tower District in the heart of the Lowell neighborhood. The Fresno site is also home to all our Administrative offices and acts as the “hub” or “main office” of our organization. Annually, we serve close to 100,000 people through efforts on Fulton Street, including the services brought to 26 different rural communities. Be sure to follow this page for the most comprehensive information on what Catholic Charities is up to throughout our 8-County Diocese.


Our Bakersfield site is located on Chester Avenue and has served Kern and Inyo counties for over 30 years. With a growing number of programs offered here and regular distributions in Delano, Wasco, Lamont, Shafter, and Buttonwillow, our team of 13 employees stays busy! Last year, nearly 1.2 million pounds of food was distributed through our Bakersfield site. Be sure to follow this page to see when our team will be out and about within the community and when we have outreaches scheduled in the surrounding areas of Bakersfield.


Our Merced site has recently undergone an exciting renovation project that will improve efficiencies and allow us to serve even more people! Over the last three years, the Merced site has seen a 125% increase in the need for our services. With eight employees in Merced, this site serves all of Merced and Mariposa counties, with visits the rural communities of Planada, Dos Palos, Los Banos, and Hilmar every month. Located in Downtown Merced right on Main Street, follow this page for exciting updates on where you’ll find our team next and photos of our completed renovation project coming soon.
