North of Boston

Catholic Charities North began more than 95 years ago with initial sites in Salem and Lynn. Through the decades, our programs have evolved to meet the changing needs of our communities. TODAY, we serve more than 18,000 children, youth, and adults annually in communities north of Boston. As part of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Boston, together our agency serves over 200,000 people throughout Eastern Massachusetts.

The programs at Catholic Charities North strive to prevent hunger and homelessness for local families in a financial emergency; engage youth in education and employment programs focused on long term solutions to poverty; and support families in their effort to build safe, nurturing environments for children.
