Catholic Center of Concern

712 4th Court West
Birmingham, AL - 35204

Shelter for all.

The Centers of Concern throughout the Diocese of Birmingham provide direct aid to the poor. These centers are one of the most important ministries of outreach in our Diocese.
A majority of the people who are helped with food, clothing, utilities, and other services are not Catholic.  It is our statement of faith That all people are created by God and need to be granted their dignity. Especially for the poor. "The Lord hears the Cry of the Poor" - we are mandated then to assist all those in need.

    In all honesty, your charity is intimidating and unwelcoming. I know you all do some wonderful charitable work but the building looks like an institution. And when you call the receptionist could and should be more HELPFUL. I feel like you need to have a secret code or something when I speak with the receptionist. I know its a job for her but she has to be reminded that donations to your charity is CHEERFULLY given by donors who want to really help people so therefore you all should ALSO be cheerful in wanting to help people. Each potential recipient will be different when they call seeking help and they shouldn't feel JUDGED by the receptionist. Than you Jacqueline
