About Us

Catholic Charities is a private agency supported by Diocesan funds, United Way grants, Federal grants, fees for services, and contributions from clients and friends. All contributions are tax deductible and fees for services are based on ability to pay.

The agency's mission is to empower and assist the residents of the Diocese of Lexington to improve their quality of life. Services currently offered include affordable mental health counseling, free pregnancy counseling, rent and utility assistance, financial literacy classes, Rachel's Vineyard retreats and support for refugees. Catholic Charities is also a licensed adoption agency. Our staff is composed of qualified and trained professionals, many of whom have state licensure.
