What is Catholic Charities?
Catholic Charities WV collaborates with community partners, parishes, and families to provide caring and compassionate services to people in need. CCWV works toward lasting and meaningful change. Additionally, Catholic Charities West Virginia is the largest private social service provider in the state, serving more than 25,000 people each year. Outreach programs and services in rural and populated communities help these people. The agency is fiscally and administratively self-governing, with executive offices in Wheeling and 12 program offices throughout WV. Professional staff that lives in the communities they serve manage these offices. Services are funded through a variety of sources, including:
- congregations and community organizations
- state contracts
- United Way agencies
- corporate and foundation grants
- and individual donors
The agency’s sound management of an $11 million budget results in more than 90% of every $1 going directly to outreach services and programs.
