Celebrating Over 100 Years of Serving Neighbors in Need

From the Executive Director:

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Ogdensburg gives love and hope to our neighbors in need throughout northern New York State. We offer a wide range of specialized programs and services that span from the beginning to life’s end and include help with critical needs including food, clothing and shelter. Guided by our values, Catholic Charities Ogdensburg Diocese serves people in need and advocates for the common good of all. 

More than that, the resources we provide are intended to address short term needs that will also foster long-term change. To this end we collaborate with our partner agencies and services in the north country to address the roots of poverty and provide services that are based on need — not religion, race or nationality.
