In times of crisis, people around the world turn to the Catholic Church. The same holds true on Long Island. Since 1957, the mission of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Rockville Centre has been to serve the basic needs of the poor, troubled, weak, and oppressed while also addressing the causes of injustice. The agency’s long history of recognizing emerging problems, forming strategic partnerships, and quickly responding with needed resources make it one of the region’s leading human service providers.
Today, Catholic Charities maintains an extensive network of over 60 sites from Elmont to the East End. More than 650 employees and 300 volunteers serve an average of 55,000 people each year of every faith and background and at every stage of life. And working with the volunteers at 133 Parish Social Ministry offices across Long Island, as many as another 75,000 are served annually. And while people and needs always change, what remains constant is Catholic Charities’ heartfelt love for every life they touch and their promise to bring, Care With Dignity…Life With Hope to the most vulnerable Long Island neighbors.
“I lead a happy and independent life and I love it here. Catholic Charities gave me much more than just a place to live."

“Catholic Charities found me when I was homeless and helped me to not only find a place to live – but they helped me to turn my life around.”

“I am not aware of any place else in the world a person can be cared for, sleep, get medical attention, guidance and love immediately – all while getting sober. Talbot House was my saving grace…”
