Sponsor a child

Every year, people like you help make sure that the child welfare and mental health programs of Catholic Charities of Baltimore have resources to enhance our mission by providing:

  • Christmas and birthday presents for children at St. Vincent’s Villa.
  • therapy supplies that help a child further their healing from trauma.
  • gift cards to support families in need and activities for children that help sustain their treatment.
  • and more!

Sponsor most needed items for children and families

Our list of most needed items – the toys, games, art supplies and activity sets you see on our wish lists – are items that are in high demand in our children’s programs. Those programs help provide structured recreational activities and therapeutic experiences to kids at St. Vincent’s Villa and Villa Maria School.

You have an amazing opportunity to help meet basic needs this season in two Baltimore City communities, Sandtown and Brooklyn, where our Safe Streets violence interrupters conduct hundreds of mediations that save lives every year. Your gifts of new winter clothing and baby supplies help the most vulnerable people in the neighborhoods.

Sponsor a family

An important part of sustaining a child’s healing for the long term is involving their caregivers in the treatment process – parents, grandparents, foster parents, or other kin. To that end, we provide family therapy, advice, training, and support groups. However, many of our families struggle financially, and so your sponsorship can help them build a more stable home life and give them the extra resources needed to participate in treatment, getting them out of survival-only-mode.
