Catholic Charities of Southern New Mexico

Catholic Charities was founded in 2004 and is sponsored by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Las Cruces to be the principal provider of social, legal, and economic assistance to individuals in need in southern New Mexico regardless of their faith, belief, gender, sexual orientation or identity, ethnicity, cultural background or immigration status. 


Catholic Charities works to help meet the basic needs of individuals and families, address the roots causes of poverty, eliminate oppression, and build a more just and compassionate society.


The mission of Catholic Charities is to serve the poor and create opportunity and hope for them by offering social services, advocating for human dignity and social justice, and calling all people of good will to do the same.
