Catholic Charities Health & Human Services
Inspired by the Gospel message called by the Social teaching of the Catholic Church, and guided by the direction of the Bishop of Cleveland, the Secretariat for Catholic Charities Health and Human Services continues the mission of Jesus by providing vision and leadership for those who respond to the health and human needs of the people of the Diocese of Cleveland. We extend the reign of God in this time and place as we work with others to build a just and compassionate society that respects the dignity of every person.
The Cleveland Catholic Diocese has a long and strong history of Catholic Charities and Catholic health care. We rely on many wonderful and dedicated individuals who commit their lives and talents to brining the healing ministry of Jesus to millions of individuals. Grounded in Catholic social teachings and professed through the Word of the Gospels, we bring our mission and values to the marginalized and vulnerable people we serve. We continue our journey to serve children and families, the disabled, the elderly and chronically ill, and people with fundamental and basic needs as portrayed for us by Jesus through Scripture.
With each life we touch, we strive to meet the spiritual, physical and psychological needs of God's people. The ministries we provide at Catholic Charities are blessed with the leadership and commitment of Bishop Lennon and dedicated employees. We continue this journey of service with one explicit desire-to continue to serve our brothers and sisters with dignity and respect.
We invite you to be a part of our organization. Visit us at our website.
