About the organization

A Mission Rooted in Catholic Social Teaching: We Serve Everyone Regardless of Faith...

Catholic Charities fulfills the Church’s role in the mission of charity to anyone in need by providing compassionate, competent and professional services that strengthen and support individuals, families and communities based on the value and dignity of human life. In order to remain faithful to our mission, Catholic Charities is guided by these core values: Respect, Compassion, Competence and Stewardship.

Far from limiting our focus, our Catholic identity and values enable us to truly be “universal,” which is what “catholic” really means. The tenets of Catholic Social Teaching call us to serve everyone, regardless of their belief or background, and to employ anyone, not just Catholics, who commits to our mission. Christ reached out to people of all faiths, and Catholic Charities does the same, with the goal of transforming lives for the better.

Duties

VISTA works collaboratively with staff to implement the strategic plan that clarifies the center’s mission, more effectively engages the community, and identifies opportunities to develop innovative programs and partnerships.
