Community Engagement

We believe that human beings grow and achieve fulfillment in community.

 We want to collaborate with churches, schools, businesses and community organizations to build up a strong system of support for those we serve. At Catholic Charities of Omaha, we are neighbors helping neighbors; our combined efforts allow us to work toward the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable in our communities.

Why We Do It

At Catholic Charities of Omaha, we serve the vulnerable—not because they are Catholic, but because we are Catholic. The Church’s social teaching is a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society.

Catholic Social Teaching is a central and essential element of our faith. Its roots are in the Hebrew prophets who announced God’s special love for the poor and called God’s people to a covenant of love and justice. It is a teaching founded on the life and words of Jesus Christ, who came “to bring glad tidings to the poor…liberty to captives…recovery of sight to the blind” (Luke 4:18-19), and who identified himself with “the least of these,” the hungry and the stranger (Matthew 25:45). Catholic Social Teaching is built on a commitment to the poor (cf. Sharing Catholic Social Teaching: Challenges and Directions | USCCB, 2011)
