Giving Hope

Catholic Charities is grateful for local support that helps us walk along side individuals and families in crisis and give hope. Individual donors, community partners, corporate partners, Catholic parishes and schools, and volunteers all help advance our mission to help our community’s most vulnerable.

Catholic Charities serves more than 100,000 clients each year. This incredible feat would be impossible without our volunteers. 

We recently celebrated some of our volunteers at a volunteer appreciation luncheon in our Phoenix office. Over the last year, we have had 3,720 volunteers contributing 175,500 hours of service at Catholic Charities.
