City Engagement Focus: Catholic Charities

Posted by Laura Mueller on

Just as we see Christ meeting tangible needs as well as spiritual needs, we partner with organizations both locally and globally who share this vision of holistic gospel ministry. We volunteer with and financially support 20 non-profits in Colorado Springs who care for and empower the most vulnerable members of our community. Each month we will highlight one City Engagement partner to share why we love partnering with them and how you can engage with them.

Who is Catholic Charities?

Catholic Charities is a place of hope and help in El Paso County.
