Who We Are

A Message from our Executive Director

Dear Friends,

“Today too, amid so much darkness, we need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others.” — Pope Francis

Being men and women who bring hope to others—that’s the mission behind what we do here at Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo. So many of the individuals we serve come from experiences of darkness—the loss of a job, an illness, a breakdown in their family structure. Many face hunger and homelessness.

At Catholic Charities, our work of hope is about more than just giving those in need food to eat or a roof over their head. It’s about helping people become self-sustaining and realizing God’s will for them. Life transformation is our goal.

On our ministries’ pages, you will find Stories of Hope. I encourage you to check them out to learn more about the work of Catholic Charities across Northwest and West Central Ohio.

I also invite you to join us in bringing hope to others through prayer, volunteering or financial support. Your help can make an impact in the lives of so many!

May God bless you, 

Rodney Schuster
Executive Director
