Our mission is to alleviate poverty, distress, and injustice by providing comprehensive social services to the poor and vulnerable, advocating for social justice, and calling all people of good will, especially those of the Church, to service. In support of our universal mission, we are open to all people regardless of their race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, marital or family status. The aim is to alleviate the languishing effects of poverty; responding to people’s basic human needs of food, shelter, clothing; and to reduce poverty by offering opportunities to improve an individual’s or family’s circumstances. Through compassionate care hope is engendered in those served and those who join in serving. Catholic Charities WV is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
