Catholic Charities Northern Region Charity Profile
Catholic Charities, a faith-based non-profit family service agency, has assisted individuals and families in New Mexico for sixty years. Its mission, “Guided by faith and love, Catholic Charities provides help and creates hope by supporting families, fighting poverty, and building community,” has provided a foundation as the agency has sought to reflect Catholic social tradition amidst the challenges of modern society.
Throughout the decades since Catholic Charities was founded in New Mexico, it has been dedicated to finding solutions to some of the most pressing problems faced by families. The Most Reverend Edwin V. Byrne, Archbishop of Santa Fe, saw a need and established Catholic Charities in New Mexico. He said, “Christian Charity is not the concern of the few, but of the many. Catholic Charities must be taken to our hearts with the deep understanding that our work is done at the command of the Christ we worship, and in accord with the ideals He established for us.”
