In our community…
A family struggles to keep food on the table. A stranger arrives in a new land needing to learn a new way of life. A woman experiences an unplanned pregnancy and considers her options. A homeless man seeks a welcoming place to have a hot meal.
These are only a few of the challenges that thousands of people in Middle Tennessee face every day. Catholic Charities of Tennessee, Inc. provides human services which enhance and enrich the quality of life for people in need. Catholic Charities believes that the services we provide are a reflection of the needs of our community. Knowing that needs change, we stand ready to shape or alter our services to meet those needs.
As the social service arm of the Diocese of Nashville, we assist more than 60,000 people each year in 38 counties across Middle Tennessee through more than 50 different programs. Social ministry to all of God's children is fundamental to our mission. Therefore, the services of Catholic Charities are available to people of every religious, ethnic, cultural, and racial background.
Our mission is clear:
Following the example of Christ, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Nashville advocates for and provides services which enhance and enrich the quality of life for people in need.
Day after day, the staff and volunteers at Catholic Charities perform acts of love, goodwill and kindness to make life better for the poor and unemployed, the young and old, for individuals and families, and for strangers in a new land.
