About Catholic Charities Dallas
Catholic Charities Dallas is a faith-based social service agency focused on improving the quality of life for people in need. We are first responders to our community’s most vulnerable, helping those in crisis move toward a better life.
CCD was formally established in 1941 and incorporated from the Catholic Diocese of Dallas in 1997. Annually, CCD helps over 30,000 individuals achieve stability and self-sufficiency through financial literacy, employment services, education, food programs, immigration legal services, refugee resettlement, disaster services and permanent supportive housing.
CCD is comprised of 17 individual programs serving the 9 counties in North Texas which make up the Diocese of Dallas. Each individual program has a particular strength and service area that represents the diversity of the populations we serve, yet our efforts to restore dignity to our community members in need remain the same regardless of what program serves them.
From homelessness to hunger, from victims of abuse to refugees of war and oppression, from the hurting to the lost, we partner with our clients to serve them during their greatest time of need and continue to walk with them on their journey to self- sufficiency.
