Welcome Volunteers      


Federation of Agencies

Long before formal organizations were established, laymen and women, clergy and religious, devoted themselves to serving the downtrodden. Whether they were orphans, immigrants, homeless, or families in crises, faith-filled responses to these groups blossomed into the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York (Catholic Charities NY) you see today.

We are now a Federation of Agencies that provides help and creates hope for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers in need. We are network of affiliated independent Catholic agencies, serving New Yorkers in need, non-Catholic and Catholic alike, with a special priority for the poor and vulnerable.

Each, with its distinctive programs and services, is rooted in the core Catholic belief that every person is made in the image of God and worthy of dignity and respect. These agencies are separately incorporated charities (or human service organizations), and Catholic Charities NY operates as the umbrella organization to this Federation of Agencies

For a complete listing of our Federation of Agencies, please visit our directory here. Discover these agencies' powerful histories, and learn how they continue to serve and improve the lives of people today.
