Our Mission

Inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Church and the pastoral leadership of the Bishop of Worcester, Catholic Charities Worcester County is committed to meeting the needs of the poor, the homeless and the infirm and to enhancing the quality of life for all.

We promote the gift and sacredness of life from the first moment of conception through all stages of human growth and development. We are committed to strengthening families and to serving individuals in need, regardless of racial, ethnic, cultural or religious origins, ability to pay, or mental, physical or developmental challenges.

We believe that every person has the right to life, housing, food, shelter, clothing, and health care, and that all should be enabled to participate in the decisions that vitally affect them.
