Welcome, friend, to our Catholic Charities website.Your involvement and support of our agency is integral to our ability to provide care for those most in need in our area. The Diocese of Springfield in Illinois has a population of over 1.1 million people and we are called to serve many. The Mission of Catholic Charities - to extend to all the healing and empowering presence of Jesus - is enfleshed in the work and dedication of our staff and volunteers on a daily basis. We are honored that you are interested in Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities is proud of its 80-plus year history of providing vital social services in our Diocese. Today, we maintain a substantial presence in ten communities throughout the twenty-eight counties of central Illinois. Area Offices operate in the communities of Alton, Carlinville, Decatur, Effingham, Granite City, Mattoon, Quincy, and Springfield. In addition, Catholic Charities manages facilities in Alton (Catholic Children's Home) and Beardstown (The St. Anne Residence). The agency has earned national reaccreditation through COA, the Council on Accreditation for Children and Family Services, which certifies that all programs meet best practice social service standards. This certification is the result of a monumental effort by Catholic Charities staff throughout the Diocese working together to modify and improve the delivery of services to our deserving clients.

The agency partners with many volunteers who are dedicated to the success of the local Catholic Charities operations. Advisory boards are excellent examples of such partnerships. The local advisory boards are comprised of special individuals who serve as the agency's vital link to the needs of our communities; they provide invaluable advocacy and support. Over the years, these advisory boards have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to ensure that the mission of Catholic Charities remains viable and responsive.

Our vast array of "Continuum of Care" services include counseling programs, senior services and guardianship, health care, residential care, independent living; special education, emergency shelter care, family preservation services, food and clothing distribution, St. John's Breadline, Meals on Wheels in Decatur, crisis assistance, MedAssist, The St. Anne Residence and discount resale stores. Catholic Charities seeks to respond to the needs of its communities through these diverse programs. Every year, this objective is realized as literally thousands of children and families are positively impacted by our efforts. Sadly, the most significant barrier to serving more people is purely monetary.

Our call is to serve all of those in need. Compassion is indiscriminate. The call is heard not only by our highly skilled staff, but also by the hundreds of volunteers, advisory board members and donors in the local communities. The Mission cannot be fully served without the critical contributions of every one of these devoted individuals.

Take time to tour our website. You will learn about many of the quality programs and people associated with Catholic Charities in our Springfield Diocese. You will also learn that there are many opportunities to help Catholic Charities with both your time and your financial support. If you have questions, please contact the office nearest you, the administrative office, or our web address as provided.

Thanks for the visit!

Sincerely,

Steven E. Roach, MS
Executive Director
