About Us

Cross Catholic Outreach is a 501(c)(3) Catholic relief and development ministry that provides food, shelter, medical care, water, education, self-help programs, care for orphans and emergency relief to the poorest of the poor in dioceses around the world in the name of Christ.

We are a Catholic ministry that collaborates with aid partners who employ a community-oriented aid strategy and who strive to increase the self-sufficiency of the poor. For larger, more advanced partners, we not only provide financial and material resources but also handle the vital functions of monitoring, reporting and financial accountability. Our partners, in turn, offer that all-important grassroots connection to the community, which is absolutely vital to the provision of humanitarian aid. For smaller-scale or less advanced partners, such as needy, church-based ministries, Cross Catholic Outreach provides support through their existing programs. In this way, we can supply meaningful help where it is needed most, as they have the necessary community outreach to serve the poor.

In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating an ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

As an official Catholic organization, we are registered with the Diocese of Palm Beach, in South Florida, and are listed in the Official Catholic Directory.

When you donate, your gift is first sorted to go to the need of your choice. It is then sent overseas or domestically, and partners with a local Catholic Ministry. Your donations are used to meet the needs of the poor, and will send you the impact of your donation.

Cross Catholic Outreach

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.

If you identify an aid project, 100% of the donation will be restricted to be used for that specific project. However, if more is raised for the project than needed, funds will be redirected to other urgent needs in the ministry.
