About Catholic Urban Programs

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

Our efforts are concentrated in the Diocese of Belleville, particularly in St. Clair County, Illinois. The goal of our ministry is to personify the Corporal Works of Mercy, which Christ reveals in the gospel of Matthew.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”

Who We Are

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
