About Us

In October 2013, Catholic Charities Community Services of Dutchess County (CCCSDC)  became a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. While still an affiliate of The Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of New York, this new independence allows CCCSDC to focus intensely on the needs of the region. CCSDC has a Board of Directors comprised of community members who have a shared interest in improving the lives and circumstances of their neighbors and who recognize the long-standing local work done by Catholic Charities.
