Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Oklahoma City Vehicle Donation Program
In 1912, the groundwork for Catholic Charities was laid with the founding of St. Joseph's Orphanage. In the following years, other institutions were opened to serve children,families,and other people in need. Among these were a boardinghouse for young working women, a maternity home, and St. Ann's Home for the Elderly.
The needs of our society have changed dramatically since the early 1900s. In turn, the work of the Agency has also changed. In recent years, there has been a national trend away from institutions toward smaller group homes for provision of services to specialized populations. Our Lady of Victory Maternity Home, serving pregnant women and infants, closed in the mid-seventies. St. Joseph's Orphanage closed in 1990 due to a lack of adequate funding by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.
Catholic Charities has adapted to changing times and trends in delivery of social services. The Agency still provides the following direct services: pre- and post- adoption services; pregnancy counseling; marriage, family and individual counseling; immigration legal services; refugee resettlement; emergency rent and utility assistance; disaster relief; homeless services; faith community nursing; and parish outreach.
