Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

After nearly two years of diligent and faithful effort, Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) has emerged from a newly-formed regional human services agency to one poised for growth in providing help and giving hope to God’s people in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Now our principal archdiocesan agency for works of mercy, CCSEM last year assisted more than 15,000 people by sharing Christ’s love through adoption and foster care services, individual and family counseling, services for seniors, refugee resettlement, Hispanic outreach, helping those in crisis circumstances, and numerous other services.

CCSEM is helping our brothers and sisters to move from dependence to healthy, self-sustained livelihoods. All CCSEM services center on the dignity of the person and strengthening the family with a commitment to accompany all through their personal trials. Efforts continue to connect CCSEM with pastors, parishes, vicariates, church ministries, and other Catholic charitable organizations to provide collaborative and coordinated assistance.

Please consider referring a loved one, friend, or neighbor who may find healing and hope through a CCSEM program or service. They can call 855-882-2736, visit, or email: In sharing this information about CCSEM, it is my hope that more will utilize this wonderful resource.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

The Most Reverend Allen H. Vigneron

Archbishop of Detroit
