In 2013, Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) emerged as a unified entity, combining the strengths of independent Catholic Social Service agencies from Oakland, St. Clair, Macomb, Monroe, and Lapeer counties. This formation established CCSEM as the principal agency for mercy-driven activities within the Archdiocese of Detroit. As the charitable extension of the Archdiocese, CCSEM is dedicated to delivering compassionate services and upholds a legacy of support across the region. Annually, CCSEM reaches over 20,000 people through a variety of programs, including counseling, foster care, adoption, adult day services, refugee resettlement, and more.

The heart of CCSEM's mission lies in honoring the dignity of individuals and fortifying families, offering support throughout their personal journeys. By partnering with pastors, parishes, vicariates, and other Catholic charitable organizations, CCSEM ensures coordinated and collaborative assistance. This approach reflects our commitment to seeing the face of Christ in everyone we serve, reinforcing our community's strength through shared values and actions.
