About US

 Please help us help our neighbors in need!

Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida has been caring for our neighbors in need since 1928. 

Catholic Charities helps individuals and families in need, as you would like to be helped if your family was in need. 

Whether it is food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, or providing adoption and pregnancy services to women overwhelmed by an unplanned pregnancy, we reach out with a humble heart to provide assistance.

We strive to serve as many people as possible, and of those served last year, 90 percent were not Catholic.

Together we can make a difference, one person at a time.  As we serve others, we want to ignite hope and transform their hearts.

We could not fulfill our mission without your support.

Together we can make a difference, one person at a time.

How can we serve so many people?  Through generous contributions from people like you.

We sincerely appreciate your prayerful consideration of a gift that will provide hope to those who need it most.

Please know that we will take special care to use it wisely in providing essential programs and services for the poor and vulnerable

in the 18 counties that we serve across the Florida Panhandle.  Remember that God uses ordinary people to carry out his extraordinary plan!



On behalf of the poor and needy. . . Thank you!

We proudly carry out the social mission of the Catholic Church throughout the eighteen most northwest counties in the Florida panhandle to serve, to empower and to advocate for vulnerable families and individuals of any race, religion or national origin.

Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), charitable organization that changed the lives of more than 47,000 individuals last year throughout the Diocese.  The overarching goal of effecting sustainable social change by making a long-term impact on individuals, families and communities remains the guiding principle of the agency’s undertakings.

Founded in 1928, the programs of Catholic Charities focus on empowerment and seek to enact long-term, positive change in the lives of those we serve. Our services are tailored for the unique circumstances of each person and our impact is significant and measurable. We serve our neighbors professionally, compassionately, in multiple languages, with great importance placed on building-up their personal dignity as we help them to remove barriers to self-sufficiency, assist them with unlocking hidden potential and encourage them to create a better life for themselves & their families.
