Serving people of all ages and from all walks of life, Catholic Charities of West Tennessee (CCWTN), is the social services arm of the Catholic Diocese of Memphis. It is one of the largest nonprofit, multi-social service providers in the Mid-south. For over 40 years, Catholic Charities of West Tennessee has provided services to those most desperate in our community, with special emphasis in the areas of homelessness, children’s programming, immigration services, veteran’s services and emergency services.
Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, we provide hope and help through intervention, counseling and case management to those facing chronic poverty. Catholic Charities of West Tennessee serves our community's most vulnerable regardless of religious beliefs, social or economic status, ethnic background or personal misfortune. Catholic Charities is not just for the Catholic Community, it is hope and service from the Catholic Community. Beginning in 2011, Catholic Charities of West Tennessee began reducing its dependence on both ‘bricks and mortar’ facilities and government funding. At the same time, it accelerated its efforts to move programming further out into the 10,000 square miles that encompass the Catholic Diocese of Memphis.
