Catholic Charities of NW FL




CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF NORTHWEST FLORIDA proudly carries out the social mission of the Catholic Church throughout the eighteen most northwest counties in the Florida panhandle to serve, to empower and to advocate for vulnerable families and individuals of any race, religion or national origin.


Founded in 1928, the programs of Catholic Charities focus on empowerment and seek to enact long-term, positive change in the lives of those we serve. Our services are tailored for the unique circumstances of each person and our impact is significant and measurable. We serve our neighbors professionally, compassionately, in multiple languages, with great importance placed on building-up their personal dignity as we help them to remove barriers to self-sufficiency, assist them with unlocking hidden potential and encourage them to create a better life for themselves & their families.



Catholic Charities of NW Florida  provides many services:


Adoption Services


 Emergency Assistance - Pensacola office - 850-436-6425

A visit for emergency assistance, at any of our four regional offices is often the first contact clients have with Catholic Charities. 


Catholic Charities helps in emergencies with such basic needs as financial, food, prescription, housing and utilities. The staff is acutely aware of services provided within the agency and the community at large, and knowledgeable about researching new resources that can benefit those in need.


The target population is families in crisis who reside in the geographical area of the diocese of Pensacola/Tallahassee. Caseworkers will normally prioritize and assist potential clients according to need, and  family situation; families with children, expectant mothers, homeless, and individuals lacking immediate necessities are all priorities.


Catholic Charities attempts to assist all applicants with the emergency situation they face and by providing financial counseling and referrals to other resources as appropriate. Catholic Charities does not have income eligibility restrictions.


Many families are facing multiple problems. Although one problem may be presented, generally financial in nature, the staff member must be able to assess other possible needs and problems of the family. Appointments are also assessed by the intake staff and referred to the appropriate caseworker or community resource.

Information needed to apply:

  • Most recent fuel bill
  • Date of birth for all household members
  • Proof of disability or medical emergency if applicant is under age 60
  • Social Security numbers for all household members
  • All income for all household members
