Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Laredo works hand in hand with Homeland Security and the Federal Authorities to provide support and respond to any humanitarian crisis on our border. In 2019, Catholic Charities has provided humanitarian assistance to almost 15,000 migrants,including children, who would otherwise be left on the streets with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
