Every day, people come to Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph for assistance. For some, that means an urgent need for food, shelter or clothing. For others, that means education, one-on-one support or training that can lead them out of poverty.

No matter where they are in that journey, your support helps us guide nearly 150,000 people every year toward long-term, sustainable change.

Here are just a few ways your gift transforms lives and communities. Remember, if your company offers a matching contribution, you can make an even bigger impact! Many companies will match charitable contributions. Check with your HR department to see if your company offers a a match.
