In support of our universal mission, we are open to all people regardless of their race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, protected Veteran status, 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.
We envision a West Virginia where all people can access the services they need to be happy, healthy, and reach their full potential.
Mission: Faith in Action
Guided by God’s love, Catholic Charities collaborates with community partners, parishes and families to provide caring and compassionate services to people in need and work toward lasting and meaningful change.
CCWVa Agency Revenue and Stewardship Statement
Catholic Charities WV has a diverse and balanced portfolio of revenue streams that comprises individual donations, Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) donations, appeals, grants (United Way, state, and federal, among others), foundations, endowment distributions, and fundraising events held throughout the state. In addition, the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston has graciously supported the agency’s budget for many years and continues to support the agency financially. In addition, a portion of the DWC Catholic Sharing Appeal has gone to the agency each year as well.
For clarification, however, we want you to know that donations made to Catholic Charities WV remain at Catholic Charities WV. No portion of any donation that is given directly to Catholic Charities WV goes to the Diocese, nor is there any such expectation from the Diocese. Donors can rest assured that the funds given directly to Catholic Charities WV go to help those in need throughout the state of West Virginia.
