100 Years of Generosity and Kindness
As we enter our Centennial Year, I feel deep gratitude for those who have walked before me.
For 100 years, thousands of men and women like you have joined the staff and volunteers of Catholic Family Center to perform God’s work in our community.

For 100 years, these generous and kind hearted people listened to the stories of our clients - each child who was orphaned, each immigrant seeking a better life for themselves and their families, each man released from prison wanting to find employment to rejoin and contribute to society, each single mother’s struggle to raise her family’s fate above the line of vulnerability to poverty - all contributed to our ability to more deeply understand how our work needed to evolve to meet new challenges facing our community.
Learn more about how your generosity, and the generosity of others like you, have transformed our city.

Centennial Recap
On March 18, nearly 500 generous donors, staff, and volunteers joined together to celebrate 100 Years of history and service in our community. Thanks to the generosity of those who came, and several loyal supporters who were unable to make it, we received more gifts than ever before in the history of Catholic Family Center! Wow, and Thank You!! Together, we are making it possible to provide people with hope, and to transform our city, for the next 100 years. Click here for a sample of what was seen during this beautiful event.

Thank you for choosing us to be your hands in this sacred work.
