Catholic Charities, Inc. is funded by federal, state, and local agencies, together with donations from the Catholic Diocese of Jackson’s Annual Service Appeal, individual donations, and private foundations. With offices in Jackson, Natchez, and Vardaman and outreach workers throughout the Jackson Diocese, we are able to serve many Mississippians. As all of us work together, we provide help and create hope…for all God’s children.
