About Us Header (1)

Our Approach

Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida serves, empowers, and advocates for impoverished and vulnerable families and individuals of any race, religion or national origin across the Florida Panhandle.

We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization that helps to rebuild lives, each and every day.

We proudly carry out the social mission of the Catholic Church throughout 18 counties in the Florida Panhandle. 

Our programs 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 and encourage them to create a better life for themselves & their families.

Our Story

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

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% 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.

Help Others. Amen.
