Our Merger

There has never been a time in our organization’s history when our service has been more in need. In order to do more good for more people, and with the support of the Diocese of Rochester and encouragement from government funders to streamline our work, our boards  approved an integration of Catholic Charities of Steuben County and Catholic Charities of Livingston County which became effective October 1, 2020. Our new combined organization is called Catholic Charities Steuben/Livingston.

The uniting of our agencies helps us achieve our mission of providing critical services to families, working to reduce poverty and food insecurity, and advocating for social justice through our services. There is no change to the services we offer or how they are delivered. Please click below for an FAQ document that will provide you with more detail on this exciting change.
