The Mission of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami is to honor God by:
Enhancing human life and dignity, supporting individuals and families, building communities, and working for justice.
Our faith calls us to defend the life, dignity, and rights of all our sisters and brothers; to serve those in need, to build communities, and to work for justice on behalf of all of God's children.
This is the story of the Church's social mission, a tradition to be shared and a challenge to be fulfilled. Founded on the life and words of Jesus Christ who came, "To bring glad tidings to the poor, liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind…" (Lk 4:18-19), our Catholic social teaching is more than a set of documents. It is a living tradition of thought and action.
We cannot celebrate a faith we do not practice. We cannot proclaim a gospel we do not live. Our mission statement allows us to proclaim our commitment to charity and justice and, through the delivery of our services, to make Christ visible in our community.
Incorporated in 1931, Catholic Charities remains for the residents of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe Counties, a pioneer in social service provision. As a leader in the field of providing specialized programs, outcome oriented results and social advocacy, Catholic Charities has remained faithful to the Gospel messages which call us to work for justice and mercy in the world. Our ministry makes Christ present in the local and international community to all who require His love and compassion.
We serve people not because they are Catholic. We serve people because we are Catholic.©
