Catholic Charities, A Community Partner Since 1992

Celebrating Catholic Charities

Creating hope and serving all people 

Catholic Charities became a Community Partner in 1992 when United Way began funding their Elderly Outreach program to assist low-income senior adults.

The Elderly Outreach Program provides persons 60 years old and older with emergency assistance for dentures, medicines, hearing aids, eyeglasses, and transportation. In 2016, United Way also began funding Catholic Charities’ Parent Empowerment Program which assists low-income parents enrolled in college with tuition, books, and some family expenses. 

A history of support

Formerly known as Catholic Family Services, Catholic Charities’ mission has remained the same as they seek to provide people of the South Plains a path to well-being through support and empowerment. The organization’s programs are wide-ranging, but all have the goal of transitioning families and individuals from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.

Catholic Charities Today

Within the first few months of 2021, Catholic Charities impacted the lives of 1,960 living in Lubbock and provided 2,921 services through their programs. The organization has helped many in rebuilding a new life for themselves.
