Catholic Charities

Catholic Charities serves those most in need. They are a leader in solving poverty, creating opportunity and advocating for justice in the community. Annually, nearly 20,000 children, families, and adults receive help, hope, dignity, and opportunity through the various programs Catholic Charities provides.

Catholic Charities opened the doors of Higher Ground Saint Paul in January 2017. Higher Ground Saint Paul is the first phase of the Dorothy Day Place Project, which includes dignified shelter, permanent homes, and pathways out of poverty. This two-phase transformational project to prevent and end homelessness is the largest public-private partnership in state history in housing and social services, securing broad support and funding from both public and private sources.
