Hubbard House

Catholic Urban Programs

Our social service programs work in collaboration to help meet the needs of our community’s most vulnerable. We create pathways to positive futures by addressing issues stemming from intergenerational poverty.

Holy Angels Shelter

Through prevention, residential and after care services, Holy Angels Shelter seeks to empower women, children and families to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency.

Human Services Office

For those living in poverty the difference between maintaining employment or housing can be as simple as receiving bus passes or utility assistance. Human Services staff works to help individuals and families maintain stability.

Griffin Center

Beyond after school and summer programing for children residing in East St. Louis public housing, Griffin Center staff works to achieve measurable academic outcomes for the children in their care.

Hubbard House

Hubbard House seeks to be a catalyst for change in the community of East St. Louis. Groups who stay at the house and participate in immersive volunteers experiences report receiving as much as they give.

Our Mission

Catholic Urban Programs advances the dignity of the human person through compassionate response to human needs, advocacy for justice, and the empowerment of individuals and families to reach their full potential.

 

Our Vision

A southern Illinois where hope prevails, justice reigns, and people are transformed.

 

Our History

Catholic Urban Programs (CUP) has been providing services throughout Southern Illinois for over 40 years. Founded in 1973 as a department of the Catholic Diocese of Belleville, CUP served the poor of East St. Louis. Over the years, CUP (currently the Human Services Office) has expanded the area it serves and has helped others create additional programs (Griffin Center, Neighborhood Law Office, Holy Angels Shelter, and Hubbard House) to meet additional needs of the same population
