Mission: Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Monterey is providing help and creating hope. We help people of all cultures and beliefs rise up out of poverty and overcome the barriers to self-sufficiency. Because most lives are a complex pattern of choices and circumstances, we take a holistic approach to helping people change their lives, taking into account the whole person as well as the family and life situation.
Programs: Family Supportive Services: offers two comprehensive financial stability programs, a long term Pathway to Stability, and a short term program Hope in Home. Both programs implement four main evidence based interventions: a) in depth assessment, b) case management, c) direct financial aid for rent and/or utilities, d) financial education, and e)referrals to community programs. Other supportive services: application assistance for CalFresh and Covered California and Nutrition Education.

Immigration & Citizenship: We provide assistance and guidance for those who struggle in achieving lawful permanent residency and those who wish to become citizens of our nation.
