CARITAS For Children is a Global Ministry. We are a Catholic Lay Apostolate recognized as a Private Juridic Person within the Archdiocese of Chicago dedicated to developing relationships globally while impacting faith locally. At its core, CARITAS For Children provides financial assistance for the health, education, and general welfare of orphaned and disadvantaged children. This is done in partnership with the laity of the local Catholic Church and Catholic religious communities throughout the world. CARITAS brings a future and hopes to children who have been born into a cycle of extreme poverty while creating a Christ-centered encounter with (caritas-loving) supporters.
