About

Since our founding in 1933, Catholic Charities of Oregon has focused on partnering with members of the community who are under-served. As the professional social service arm of the Catholic Church in western Oregon, we partner closely with the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon. We are also a member agency of Catholic Charities USA, one of the  largest networks of social service providers in the country.

For those that we partner with, we focus on solidarity, love, dignity, family, caring for the world around us and ensuring that basic life needs are not only met but exceeded and maintained.  We welcome and serve everyone, regardless of race, religion, or orientation.

For those that volunteer and donate, we focus on making sure that every bit of good is squeezed out of every minute of time given and every dollar spent.  We’re effective, caring, nonjudgmental, and welcome everyone, regardless of race, religion, or orientation.

For those that are considering employment at Catholic Charities, we care for our employees so that they can take care of others.  Together, we work to make a concrete, hands on difference in our community.
