Catholic Charities Indianapolis has strived to improve the community of central Indiana by serving poor and vulnerable people for more than 90 years.

The agency served more than 48,600 people during the past year, regardless of their religious affiliation or ethnic background.

“The people we serve are our neighbors who might otherwise be unknown, forgotten or marginalized people who have shown courage emerging from despair and humiliation into the hope and light of Catholic Charities,” says David Bethuram, agency director of Catholic Charities Indianapolis. “We are grateful for the generosity of so many people who help us serve.”
