Impact Report 2017


Dear Friends, It may be hard to believe, but Catholic Charities was started 110 years ago, as a response to the devastating 1906 earthquake and has grown into one of the most comprehensive human service agencies in Northern California. In this 110th year together, we provided shelter and hope for homeless mothers and their children. In 2017, we saw a record number of homeless women who were either mothers to small infants or expecting. In fact, at one time, we had over eight infants in one of our family shelters. Together, we helped keep struggling families in their homes and off the streets. Together, we taught children to read and build critical skills that will break the cycle of generational poverty. We encouraged good sportsmanship and teamwork for thousands of young athletes and provided a safe, nurturing place for kids when school is out of session. Together, we provided a community for aging adults and respite for their caregivers. We let our aging neighbors know they are important, valued, and loved. Together, we advocated for immigrants and worked to ensure their safety and security. It takes all of us to protect the human dignity of our brothers and sisters. Now, more than ever, we must stand together to fight injustice and poverty. Thank you for partnering with us to make our community a better place to live, learn, and grow. We hope you view this report as a celebration of the accomplishments you have helped make possible. Blessings,

Jilma L. Meneses Chief Executive Officer
