Catholic Charities Odessa Texas

Our Mission

“Catholic Charities provides immediate assistance and educates to empower for long-term self-sufficiency”.

We strive to meet this goal by assisting families facing hardship, with funds, advocacy, and educational training. We primarily serve those in Ector County that are needing assistance with emergency funds. Our Cory Learning Center is offered to anyone who would like to improve their education and workforce skills.

“The Promise was that when the glass was full, it would overflow, benefitting the poor. But what happens instead, is that when the glass is full, it magically gets bigger – nothing ever comes out for the poor” Pope Francis
