Immigrants And Refugees


Catholic Charities of Staten Island, is a 501c3 not-for-profit agency of the Archdiocese of New York, founded in 1871 by Father John C. Drumgoole.

In line with the Gospel mandate and the social mission of the Catholic Church, it seeks to promote family life, create a caring and healing community, and to allow all those it serves the realization of their God-give potential. The Mission strives in all its programs to promote the universal ideals of justice, peace and compassion and to work in concert with other community resources.

Our services include infant and pre-school day care; residential and other programs for developmentally challenged youth; social services to families in crisis, assistance to senior citizens, and a free community resource center to bridge the gap between addiction and recovery.
