About Catholic Charities NY

Archbishop Dolan, w/ Lawrence J. Hickey, visiting Astor's Hickey Center for Child Development, Dec. 2009Catholic Charities collaborates with a network of affiliated agencies, both non-Catholic and Catholic, to build a compassionate and just society, and to deliver, coordinate, and advocate for quality human services and programs touching almost every human need.

Astor shares with Catholic Charities their belief that “all children deserve the opportunity to develop social skills, gain confidence and develop lasting values that will serve them as adults.” Through a network of specialized services like those delivered by Astor, Catholic Charities “cares compassionately for the most vulnerable New Yorkers — non-Catholics and Catholics alike.”
