Giving for CARITAS Global Needs…
creates real Joy and Purpose.

We’re not truly alive when we’re disconnected from the people who need us most

Every day, we hear about children in need around the world, yet we struggle to find a tangible way to personally make a difference. Through CARITAS For Children we’ve found a way. And for those who join us, it’s a way flowing with joy and purpose.

CARITAS needs your help

Your gift of any amount will enable CARITAS to help
families and children in need around the world by:

  • Expanding and growing our sponsorship programs and locations
  • Providing supplemental tuition costs and vital resources of daily meals, clothing and supplies for a quality education
  • Developing diocesan/parish-based Catholic Outreach Programs to support our total sponsorship/support ministry
  • Aiding for inter-country adoption of children for families in the United States
  • Creating initiatives around the world culturally and spiritually connecting families and individuals
Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,

naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.

—Matthew 25:34-36
