Providing Hope, Changing Lives, Serving All…

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of La Crosse proclaims Christ’s Gospel of Life and promotes human dignity by alleviating poverty and strengthening individuals and families. We work with individuals, families and communities to help them meet their needs, address their issues, eliminate oppression, and build a just and compassionate society.

What's New...

Homeless for the Holidays

Many lives have been touched by the Good Shepherd Shelter, the La Crosse Warming Center and the Sojourner House in the last year. But we are facing some tough times ahead. Without your support we will not be able to help transform lives this holiday season and in the years ahead.

Christmas Program

Every year hundreds of individuals and families in need across the diocese request help at Christmas time and to fulfill these requests, we need your help! If you are able to assist, please contact us and we will match your donation with a child or family needing help this year.

Advent Annual Appeal

At Catholic Charities, we strive to embody the spirit of compassion and hospitality, ensuring that no one is turned away. We open our doors to the most vulnerable members of our community, providing them with warmth, nourishment, and hope. This Advent season, we humbly appeal to your generosity to help us continue our mission of serving Christ’s children in our community.

Flooding-Need Assistance?

If you are affected by flooding and need assistance, please reach out to your local Emergency Management agency first; then your personal insurance company; next the Red Cross; then our agency. Staff will access your situation and see how we can help.

National Adoption Month!

Have you ever considered adopting a child? Do you have a friend or family member who has been considering it? Now is the time to have your questions answered. During October and November we are offering $200 off on applications for families beginning Intercountry or Domestic Adoptions. Call 844-64GRACE today and learn more!

We Are In Need Of Volunteers!

Our Warming Centers are open and we are in need of volunteers in La Crosse, Wausau and Eau Claire! Volunteering can take many forms which include making and serving meals, distributing bedding and clothing, helping a guest read, and enjoying the evening. Whatever your schedule permits or comfort level, we have a volunteer opportunity for you!
