Providing Help. Creating Hope.

Helping Our Vulnerable Brothers and Sisters

Catholic Charities Community Services seeks to provide high quality human services to New Yorkers of all religions who are in need. The newcomer, the family in danger of becoming homeless, the hungry child, the emotionally challenged, and developing youth are among those for whom we have a particular concern. Our work is grounded in the belief of the dignity of each person as made in the image of God and the building of a just and compassionate society – especially for the most vulnerable among us.

Our Divisions


Alianza Division operates high quality, youth-focused programming in public schools.  We effectively engage parents and other school and community stakeholders to improve students' educational outcomes and increase access to much needed resources.

Beacon of Hope

The Beacon of Hope Division provides a continuum of housing opportunities to people struggling with serious mental illness. This choice of housing alternatives supports the re-entry and integration of residents in the community. We work closely with individuals to help negotiate the tasks of daily living, cope with psychiatric and medical crises, seek employment and more.

Catholic Youth Organization

The Catholic Youth Organization New York proudly serves more than 28,000 youth each year in sports and spiritually-based activities promoting health, sportsmanship, fairness and team-building. CYO is about so much more than just sports — it’s about fostering young people’s spiritual, cultural and athletic growth.

Community Outreach Services

Whether it is a friendly volunteer helping a family choose nutritious food at a pantry, the listening ear of a case manager helping to resolve a crisis, or an eviction prevention professional providing expert counsel, the Community Outreach Services Division responds to a wide range of problems our neighbors in need encounter in daily life.

Immigrant & Refugee Services

Our specialized Immigrant and Refugee Services Division provides a wide range of services for newcomers to our community. We offer legal services, two multi-lingual hotlines for those seeking informed assistance, refugee resettlement assistance, legal and supportive services for unaccompanied minors and English learning and acculturation programs.
