Charting impact

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

1. Increase awareness of our cause to attract new supporters, volunteers and advocates
2. To continue to work collaboratively within our vast agency and many programs, to help solve a multitude of problems facing the most vulnerable
3. To continue to serve the community during this global pandemic and to ensure we safely do so to protect staff, volunteers and service recipients.
4. Grow development/advancement office to diversify funding and to do so openly and transparently.
5. Work collaboratively across our organization and with our board of trustees to update and enhance out facilities to provide dignity and respect for those we serve.

Catholic Charities, Diocese of Paterson has a dedicated, reinvigorated, energized board of trustees.

Different board committees and groups meet on an almost weekly basis to discuss the issues facing our organization, communities, and society.

We have a dedicated team of over 1,000 employees and volunteers who now work more collaboratively and cohesively than ever before.

We are a stand alone 501(c)(3) organization but are also part of the Diocese of Paterson and a member agency of Catholic Charities USA. We work with these entities and representatives from service groups throughout the country to meet the needs of our diverse communities.

For 80 years, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Paterson has been providing help and creating hope.

However, in 2017 we created a new nonprofit organization and have brought our vast programs together.

This new beginning and administrative merger has helped us grow cohesively and enact our mission more transparently, while helping more people in need. Now more than ever, we are able to look at problems facing our community and ask ourselves how we can take a multitude of approaches to solve major societal issues.

-In 2017, for the first time in our history, we established Catholic Charities as its own 501(c)(3) organization. Since then we formed a new board of trustees with representatives from all our programs. We then hired our first CEO of Catholic Charities, in our 80 year history.

- We have unified and streamlined our human resources, finance, and development teams.

- We established a facilities committee, in coordination with out program leaders, have been able to upgrade, rebuild, and relocate several of our programs.

- We have established new programs to meet the needs of our communities, including crisis counseling for those impacted by COVID-19 and new programs for those impacted by drug and alcohol addiction.

- We have persevered through COVID-19, helping more people than ever in our history; and keeping the most vulnerable among us safe.
