Since 2009, SERVE has worked with over 913 high school students, leveraging 33,309 volunteer hours in our community. Students are able to engage in impactful service experiences while meeting high school requirements for service hours. This year the students can choose to volunteer with Second Harvest Food Bank or CCANO Food for Seniors. Both opportunities require volunteers to pack food boxes for eligible families around the state. Students will not only commit to a week of volunteer service, but also participate in a Reflection Day, put on by CCANO’s Office of Justice and Peace.

Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans (CCANO) has been an open door, a warm welcome, dry ground, a defending voice, and a hand up for generations of Louisiana residents. Our shared stories and strong roots help a diverse community stand tall together. Meeting the needs of the whole person is our continued commitment. Here’s what sets CCANO apart:

OUR CATHOLIC IDENTITY

Our Catholic identity guides our values and practices and fuels our motivation to love our city well. Our staff and volunteers come from diverse backgrounds but all share the Catholic commitment to serve everyone, regardless of religion.

OUR RESPONSIBLE STEWARDSHIP

Our responsible stewardship of resources sets us apart. Ninety-five percent of all donations go directly to the needs of the people we serve. We believe in transparency. View copies of our most recent audited financials and 990 form and contact us with any questions.

OUR HOLISTIC APPROACH

Our holistic approach to programming serves the entire community and meets the full range of human needs. CCANO currently encompasses 29 different programs and one affiliated ministry that cover housing and homelessness, immigration and refugee services, children and family services, health and behavioral health services, justice and employment services, senior services, and disaster response services.

OUR LONG HISTORY

Our long history in New Orleans gives us deep structural knowledge and a rich network for doing good. The Ursuline nuns began serving the needy in the New Orleans area in 1727. In 1938, Associated Catholic Charities incorporated to coordinate the Archdiocese’s many service agencies. Renamed Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans in 1996, CCANO is now one of the largest and most active Catholic Charities agencies in the country.

Our Staff

CCANO is guided by leadership staff and a board of directors.
