Today, the Archdiocese of Washington includes more than 580,000 Catholics. Its 98 schools educate nearly 30,000 children while its service agencies, including Catholic Charities and Victory Housing, have made the Archdiocese the largest private social service provider in the region. Every year, thousands of people receive counseling, shelter, adoption and foster care assistance, health care, immigration and legal aid, affordable housing and more through the care of archdiocesan staff and volunteers. New immigrants find assistance at the many archdiocesan ministries serving our diverse community, including the Spanish Catholic Center.
