We recently announced the merger of Catholic Charities of Wayne County with Catholic Charities of the Finger Lakes. This merger was conducted with the support of the Diocese of Rochester and our Board of Directors.


The purpose for the merger is to increase our mission impact in all communities we serve. By working together, we can help more people per year with broader geographical reach. We are committed to our mission of providing services to families, working to reduce poverty, and advocating for social justice through our programs. All programs that were available in Wayne County will continue, along with the physical office location in Newark, NY. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at [email protected].
