Serving those in need with compassion
Welcome to CATHOLIC CHARITIES – ST. AUGUSTINE REGIONAL OFFICE. Since 1975, we have provided assistance to residents of St. Johns, Putnam and Flagler counties. The St. Augustine Regional Office has shared in the mission and traditions of the Catholic Church since 1944. In December of 1975, the first “official” office was opened in St. Augustine by Father O’Flaherty. This office was housed at San Sebastian Catholic Church, located on State Road 16. In 1997, we moved into a larger facility on West King Street in downtown St. Augustine. As of April 2014, we had the privilege of moving and expanding our operation to Lewis Speedway, St. Augustine, and our most recent move in April 2021 to a bigger office at 525 FL-16, Suite 112, St. Augustine, Florida 32084.
Over the years, the St. Augustine Regional Office has grown into a multi-faceted agency that served more than 10,000 people in our surrounding communities last year, primarily families with minor children, senior citizens and individuals in need. Our programs and services include Emergency Assistance with Rent/Mortgage and Utility Bills, Emergency Food Assistance and Weekend Hunger Backpack Program. Our services are offered to all people regardless of religious affiliation, gender, race or ethnic origin.
Now more than ever, individuals and families in crisis are looking for assistance to pay their monthly bills. They are struggling to keep food on the table and to make ends meet. They are looking for help. In order to continue serving our growing clientele, we need the support of caring citizens. PLEASE HELP US TO HELP THEM. Few experiences are more satisfying than helping an individual, family or senior citizen in need through rough times. Please contact us for more information on how you can help.
