Values & Uniqueness


A significant factor that shapes our uniqueness is that San Bernardino and Riverside Counties are two of the largest counties by area in the United States, encompassing over 27,000 square miles with more than 4 million residents. Our geographic region includes urban cities, extensive suburban developments, rural agricultural pockets, and tiny communities scattered throughout a very large unincorporated and isolated desert. Catholic Charities addresses this geographic challenge with a well-coordinated and complicated web of staff, services, and locations.

Array of Services

Catholic Charities is quite unique in the broad range of services provided by one organization.  Most frequently, families come to us due to an unexpected personal or financial crisis and without the resources they need to resolve the crisis on their own.  Varying problems require varying solutions, and therefore require a broad range of interventions and services. Catholic Charities assists families to regain their stability by providing the vitally necessary social services and by increasing access to other services that may available in the community, so families may move beyond the crisis and forward with their lives.


Catholic Charities staff is as diverse as the community it serves in every way.  Our staff is exceptional and bonded by an eagerness to share with others whatever each has to bring to the table based on their education, personal experience, and specific training. Those employed at Catholic Charities readily accept that our work is not just a job – it is a mission.  Our culture of kindness and service is the backbone of who we are and what we are able to accomplish in the community.
