Giving communities the tools to thrive
Our Auxiliary Services supplement our core work and support those who may otherwise fall into poverty.
At Catholic Charities of Oregon, we are continuously evolving our services to meet the needs of those whom mainstream society has all but forgotten. Our Auxiliary Services allow us to be flexible and creative in our work to provide unique support to those living on the margins of poverty as they develop self-sufficiency and stability.

The Border is Everywhere
In partnership with Catholic Charities USA, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), and the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC), Catholic Charities of Oregon supports access to wraparound services that promote the healthy integration and well-being of our newest neighbors as they start their lives in the United States.
The Zomi are a Christian ethnic minority group from Myanmar, Bangladesh, and India. Intense religious persecution in Myanmar has caused the resettlement of many Zomi to Portland as refugees.
