ABOUT US

We thank you for visiting our website and welcome the opportunity to tell you about the wonderful work we do everyday.

With humble beginnings in 1912 when eight parishes came together to do collectively what none could achieve alone, Catholic Charities Spokane today is a dynamic, value-driven organization of 225 employees with an annual budget of $12 million.  We annually serve more than 77,000 different people and are the largest sectarian social service organization between Seattle and Minneapolis. 

Our goals remain true to the original vision of the 1912 "Betterment League" - to help those who need us - our brothers and sisters in Christ, helping them to gain or regain wholeness.  While we are Catholic in name and in values, we serve all persons in need; our caring and assistance extends throughout the 13 counties of Eastern Washington. 

We operate with a progressive management team and are advised by a number of Boards.  As we celebrate 103 years of service to our Eastern Washington community, we stand ready and, indeed, look forward to meeting the many challenges of the future.  Mostly, we look forward to providing a caring hand to the many poor and vulnerable people who come to our doors every day. 

Catholic Charities administers 13 programs in the 13 counties of Eastern Washington which provide food, shelter, clothing, education, counseling and support to those in need, regardless of creed.
