Providing help and creating hope in Maine


A Mission to Provide Help, Hope, and Justice for All Mainers

Since 1966, Catholic Charities has been bringing help and hope to Maine’s most vulnerable men, women and children regardless of faiths. We believe that by sharing our RICHES — Respect, Integrity, Compassion, Hospitality, Excellence and Stewardship —
we create more enriching and fulfilling lives for us all.

We are nearly 500 full- and part-time employees, 560 volunteers and more than 1300 generous donors working together to offer support, bring recovery, teach children, strengthen families, welcome strangers, provide comfort, feed the hungry, and anything else we can to help change lives for the better.
We are Catholic Charities Maine.

Empowering All by Sharing Our RICHES
The true RICHES of Catholic Charities Maine — Respect, Integrity, Compassion, Hospitality, Excellence & Stewardship — are grounded in the social teachings of Jesus Christ, empowering our mission and values and guiding us in all we do.
