Catholic Charities Hawai‘i serves the people of Hawai‘i by providing a wide range of social services with compassion and a commitment to excellence.


Catholic Charities Hawai‘i was chartered in 1947 by the Maryknoll Sisters to serve the growing social needs created by the effects of World War II in Hawai‘i.  Today, we continue their legacy of caring by providing help to people in need, regardless of their faith or culture.

Assisting homeless families, individuals, veterans and seniors with supportive and financial services to obtain stable housing options.

Offering outreach and counseling services for families, children and individuals.

Keeping foster youth of all ages safe and supported in caring and nuturing homes.

Strengthening at-risk families to develop the skills and support they need to provide a safe and stable environment.

Empowering immigrants to have a significant role in their own self-determination.

Sustaining independent living for seniors.
