Catholic Charities welcomes individuals and families of all faiths or no faith tradition.  This office located in the town of Hertford serves the following counties: Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hertford, Hyde, Martin, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell, Washington.


Catholic Charities understands the importance of an individual becoming “whole” both emotionally, spiritually and physically when going through life’s transitions and challenges.  Please contact our office if you have questions about community counseling services.

Food Pantries

We provide healthy foods and nutritional awareness to our communities.  Families seeking assistance with food will also be screened for other needs which Catholic Charities can either address, or make a referral to a community partner.

Other Direct Assistance

Clothing Closet

Families are invited to browse our selection of donated clothing items to find what fits their needs.

Financial Assistance

We provide limited emergency financial assistance for rent, utilities, and other emergency needs (based on availability of funding).  Applicants need to come to the office and complete an Emergency Assistance Application.


Volunteers play a very important role in the services that Catholic Charities provide. Volunteers work with poor and vulnerable families of all faith traditions, and quite a few only Speak Spanish.

Throughout our 5 regions we have volunteers working in the following capacities: filing, reception, working in the food pantry (stocking shelves with food, organizing and implementing logistics for food donations and distribution), entering data, and organizing donated clothes.

Volunteers can also be trained to assist with our Family Support Services program. Some responsibilities include: conducting screening interviews to identify clients’ needs, assisting in the ESL or GED classes, assisting with resume writing, and working in the childcare area.

To find out how you can volunteer, please contact the Hertford Office at 252-426-7717.
