Message from Father John

Catholic Charities continues to serve as a leader in the Washington, D.C. area, providing services to over 192,000 individuals in need. As we look to our future, I cannot help but think of our past and how we got to where we are today. For almost a century, we have built a community who values hard work, dedication and compassion for others. Like a secure port during a dangerous storm, Catholic Charities remains a safe landing space for thousands of individuals and families. 

The future of Catholic Charities is bright, thanks to the leadership and support of our Board of Directors, staff and generous partners. We remain committed to the poor, especially the homeless, refugee population and people with mental and developmental disabilities. We are steadfast in our goal to help individuals and families move from crisis and isolation to stability and growth and continue our unwavering commitment to provide accessibility for our clients through comprehensive and integrated services.

We are excited to launch our campaign to raise $100,000,000 in support of our programs, our increased endowment and an investment into the Newcomer Network initiative. Thank you for continuing to serve as a champion for Catholic Charities, and I look forward to your support of our extraordinary campaign. 

Msgr. John J. Enzler
