Mission

The Mission of Livingston County Catholic Charities is the work of the Catholic Church, to share the love of Christ by performing the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.\n Vision Statement: Livingston County Catholic Charities aims to provide quality human services to Livingston County residents regardless of race, gender, religion, age, disability or financial ability.

Notes from the nonprofit

Livingston County Catholic Charities (LCCC) is a community resource serving all of Livingston County, Michigan through an array of programs and services. Approximately 70% of those we serve identify with other faiths or no faith and 2/3 of those we serve live at or below 150% of the national poverty level. Over the years we have grown to meet community needs. In 2004 we opened Be Our Guest Adult Day 2013 the only adult day center in the county then and now. Be Our Guest serves clients with dementia and related illnesses. 7 years ago, we opened our Foster Care and Adoption program which at that time was the only private agency in the county serving county children. We felt it was important to have a local agency serving our children and families so the children were not taken out of the county making it more traumatic for them as well as harder for family visits and reunification.Recently we began a Prevention of Elder Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation program, providing education.

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The agency is in the beginning stages of launching our current Strategic Plan for the period of 2023-2025. The agency currently rents all office space and seeks to address the agency's long-term occupancy needs and develop a plan to purchase. Most agency programs are reliant on fundraising and we seek to strengthen the income streams for existing programs and diversify revenue sources.

Strategies to achieve stated goals can be found in the 2023-2025 strategic plan. Goals will be achieved through a myriad of new and innovative strategies and partnerships.

The agency conducts a SWOT analysis for each program and the agency overall. With this information, Board and co-workers work together to formulate a plan going forward. In addition, the agency undergoes a reaccreditation process and is currently in the midst of this process. Through this, community members, clients and other professionals we interact with or collaborate with fill out a survey. This information is also valuable in future planning.

The agency has experienced steady growth since 2001; adding programs, staffing, and revenue. Each new program has been in response to a community need and each has fit within the overall Mission and Vision. In November of 2019 (after 1.5 years operating with a MOU), LCCC absorbed a local non-profit, Special Ministries of Livingston County (SMLC), into the LCCC programming. SMLC serves adults with disabilities. Should SMLC have ceased to exist, programming in Livingston County would be limited for adults with disabilities years of age when they age out of government-supported programs through the schools.

In 2022 LCCC seniors services team launched two new programs.
