We Unite a Wide Network of Outreach Programs


  • Our network of volunteers, donors, programs and parishes ensures that our neighbors can count on a helping hand. Every day of the week, nearly every hour of the day, an Episcopal Charities outreach program is providing support, education and nourishment to people in need across the Diocese.
  • Thank you to the thousands of caring volunteers who invested time in their communities and served our neighbors in 2017.
  • In 2017, 205 people — clergy, staff and volunteers working in our programs — took part in free professional-development training through our Sustainability Institute Workshops.
