Catholic Charities

Catholic Charities was established during the “Hungry Thirties” under the direction of the Most Reverend William Mark Duke, Archbishop of Vancouver from 1931 to 1964.

Since its founding, the Catholic Charities has provided many social services such as the Greater Vancouver Catholic Credit Union, the Catholic Lending Library and the Catholic Youth Centre Pool.

Today, Catholic Charities continues to strongly serve the social needs of Greater Vancouver through: the Catholic Charities Men’s Shelter, Catholic Charities (Prison Ministry), the Refugee Sponsorship program administered by the Office of Service & Justice, and The Door Is Open.
