Mission Statement

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Boston programs serve the poor and working poor in your community with dignity and compassion. For over 100 years, Catholic Charities has helped families as they struggle to put food on the table, secure child care for their children and seek out better opportunities through education. Last year alone, Catholic Charities served over 200,000 of your neighbors of all faiths across Eastern Massachusetts. At Catholic Charities, we strive to help people become self-sufficient.

Background Statement

The story of Catholic Charities begins in 1903 with John J. Williams, Archbishop of Boston. After witnessing the appalling social conditions of Boston's immigrant and predominantly Catholic population, the Archbishop envisioned an agency that would provide assistance and hope to families in need.
During the first half of the twentieth century, the agency began primarily as an adoption/foster care agency, then continued to expand and evolve in order to provide direct assistance to poverty-stricken families, the elderly, single pregnant women, and newly-arrived immigrants. Between 1916 and 1920, branch offices opened in Brockton, Lawrence, Lynn, Salem, Somerville, and Lowell to assist needy Catholics and to reach out to include non-Catholic immigrants.

During the Great Depression, Catholic Charities joined with local social service agencies of all faiths to form the Community Federation of Boston, directly assisting hundreds of thousands of needy individuals. Catholic Charities supplied food and clothing to thousands of families daily and continued to find homes for orphans and children in need. As the Depression ended, Catholic Charities shifted its emphasis from direct assistance to adoption, foster care, marital counseling, alcohol abuse treatment, and immigration and refugee services.

Becoming incorporated in 1945, The Catholic Charitable Bureau of the Archdiocese of Boston then expanded again, opening a branch office in Haverhill and beginning the process of professionalism of the staff.

Impact Statement

The goal of Catholic Charities is to make a difference by delivering quality, high impact programs and partnering with other nonprofit agencies to better serve our clients. The agency advocates for the poor by influencing the state and federal policy agenda as well as by engaging staff, volunteers and donors to advocate for our social service agenda. Catholic Charities management runs the organization to achieve operational excellence, foster and retain supporters, and promote the services and reputation of Catholic Charities.  

Needs Statement

Catholic Charities has advocated for increases to state funding to ensure consistent care by quality, talented early educators and increases to the funding of MEFAP to increase food security in the state. In addition, the agency has advocated to protect current state funding for programs that reduce the impact of violence on youth that is being threatened by budget cuts. Recently, senior management of the agency was invited to participate in a community forum in Washington, DC, talking with White House officials about a broad range of issues impacting our communities, including hunger, healthy child development, refugee and immigrant families, and education.

CEO Statement

We are proud to show you the wide variety of successes we have achieved with your help—from our work in response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, to keeping pace with the ever-growing demands in our food pantries.

At Catholic Charities, we are passionate about embracing families. For us, this means ensuring that families and individuals from all walks of life have the same opportunities for success and have access to programs and services to meet fundamental needs. Education programs are one of the most important services we provide across all of the communities we serve.

Beginning with early childhood education at our childcare centers—which all consistently receive the prominent National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accreditation—Catholic Charities and our more than 2,000 volunteers are dedicated to the importance of education.

By providing services at every level—including adult education programs, afterschool programs for teens, tutoring programs, education programs for immigrants, and education in training programs to re-enter the workforce—we are preparing students of all ages and educational levels to succeed.

It seems that every year we tell you there were extraordinary challenges and this year is no different. Funding at the state and federal level continues to decrease and we continue to be challenged to find creative ways to fund our programs and expand those which are most in demand.

We continue to depend on you, our volunteers, our friends, and our neighbors, to help us to provide the services and tools on which so many in Eastern Massachusetts rely. Thank you for providing us with the support necessary to embrace and educate families.

With sincere gratitude,

Deborah Kincade Rambo, LICSW

Examples of Program Success  Ines frequents the Yawkey Food Pantry in Dorchester since she had to leave her job as a nurse aide due to a leg injury last year. Without the income from her employer, the food she gets at the pantry helps her to make sure her family gets the nutrition they need. Ines enjoys helping the elderly and has been working with them since 1986. She is looking forward to going back to work but faces other challenges. Her Home Health Aide certificate expired, and she does not have the money to renew it. She is the sole caregiver for her grandson and needs to find her grandson a space in an affordable, quality child care. With this food assistance, she hopes she is able to save the money for her certification so she can go back to working in a position she loves.

Child Care

Our programs are designed to meet the service needs of our families by providing child care that is flexible in hours, is reasonably priced, and meets the parents’ needs for their children. We find parents can meet their own work and personal needs when they know their children are in a center that appreciates them as individuals, as members of a family, and strives to help children reach their potential through support and nurturing

We believe it is our responsibility to provide a setting which enhances individual strengths and differences, and which sees each unique child, parent, and staff person as a member of our community. We strive to incorporate individual personalities, skills, and needs into our classroom curriculum and special activities.

We subscribe to the following theories of learning:
  • A child’s self-esteem is essential to the learning process.
  • A physically and psychologically safe environment is necessary for growth.
  • Children learn through play.
  • An integrated, multi-cultural school and staff contribute to the development of self-respect and appreciation of others.
  • Learning is a cooperative process.
  • Helping a child to develop independence is another goal.

Our children range in age from 4 weeks to 13 years, depending on the location. They live primarily in the Greater Boston area and surrounding communities. Our programs are licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC), are NAEYC accredited.

Program Short-Term Success  Our curriculum is based on the development of the whole child.

The Creative Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers and Creative Curriculum for Preschool, both firmly based in scientific theory and research about how children develop and learn, serve as the framework for planning and implementing our programs. The classroom environment is organized into a variety of interest areas, and broad themes are developed to stimulate learning in each area. Play and discovery are the foundation of our curriculum. Teachers use observation and assessment to plan for each child’s individual needs, as well as the needs of the group.

She has had such a wonderful experience at the Laboure Center over the last year and my husband and I wanted to thank YOU all for making her stays a positive and rewarding experience.

Success Story

Jose had difficulty in school and dropped out in the 9th grade. His mother worked two jobs to support he and his younger brothers who had no male role model. After brushes with the police for deliquency and drug use, Jose decided to make a change in his life. He joined the YOUTHWORKS program in January 2011 and worked very hard, taking full advantage of what was offered. He participated in the computer literacy, financial literacy, work readiness, and transition to college courses while in the program, as well as summer employment where he worked as a camp counselor mentoring younger youth. He obtained his GED and is now majoring in Business at NSCC. He is proud of himself and works to be a positive role model for his brothers.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
