About The Archdiocese of Miami
Since its inception in 1958, the Archdiocese of Miami has served the people of South Florida by building community through service. From its social service organizations to its resettlement centers and child and adult day care centers, the Archdiocese has been a catalyst for social change and a center of hope for our brothers and sisters in need. Its 125 parishes and missions, 78 schools and countless ministries strive to serve all who seek their help, and advocate daily for the ongoing needs of our community.
Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami was established in 1931 to serve victims of the Great Depression. For over 75 years, Catholic Charities has served tens of thousands of people in need each year throughout the South Florida community, providing hope where it is most needed. Catholic Charities programs are varied and numerous, aiming to help all who seek assistance. Catholic Charities feeds the hungry, welcomes the stranger, cares for children and the elderly and helps them thrive, protects families and guides them to self-sufficiency, and offers counseling and support to children, adults, families, victims of domestic violence, HIV/AIDS sufferers and others. Catholic Charities helps others not because they are catholic, but because we are catholic.
Catholic Health Services of the Archdiocese of Miami continues to grow and thrive, providing services universally including home health care, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation hospitals, low-income housing for the elderly, educational services, and catholic cemeteries. Building on more than 20 years of successful service, Catholic Health serves more than 6,000 people each day in 26 facilities. We provide our services with love, skill, compassion and respect for all human dignity — regardless of race, creed or religious affiliation.
