What We Do

What We Do

Catholic Charities Diocese of Fresno is a Community Benefit Organization serving the
needs of those in crisis with sites in Fresno, Merced and Bakersfield.
We are the first responders in helping our neighbors with food, clothing and
other basic necessities regardless of age, race or beliefs. Hunger extends far beyond our brick and mortar sites. Thanks to our supporters we are able to fulfill our mission to serve all those in need throughout the 35,239 square miles within the Diocese of Fresno.

Families who are experiencing difficult economic times can come to Catholic Charities to ease the burden of caring for their families as we lend a helping hand.

Families who we are not able to directly impact through our brick and mortar sites we are able to serve through our Rural Outreach Program. Our Rural Outreach Program that was initiated May 2019 and it has made a great impact in the communities it serves. In the last year we have done 112+ outreach events in 24+ different communities throughout the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno. Through this program alone we have served 29,651+ people.

“Our mission is respecting the presence of God among us, we serve,
advocate for and empower those in need.”
