Dogwood Gala 2013 Charity Event

Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida carries out the social mission of the Catholic Church in Northwest Florida, to serve, to empower and to advocate for vulnerable families and individuals of any race, religion or national origin.

In 2012, the Fort Walton Beach Office of Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida provided individuals and families with immediate hunger relief on more than 23,0000 occasions; gave holiday assistance to 1,388 people; helped many local residents avoid utilites disconnection, eviction or foreclosure; and provided 472 hours of Christian mental health counseling.

In 2012, we also began offering bus passes and gasoline cards to assist the working poor with their transportation needs: and have provided individualized assistance to hundreds.
