Catholic Charities of Pueblo
We help families turn dreams into reality.
We serve families regardless of religious, ethnic, social or economic backgrounds. Programs are often voluntary, with many having no required income guidelines. Families benefit from our 2Gen approach, which focuses on creating opportunities for and addressing needs of both children and the adults in their lives together. We utilize a strengths- based approach, and work with families to achieve their goals. Proudly, we serve over 12,000 individuals each year.
While we have many programs, our main focus is toward early childhood well-being and education. Our vision is that every home is a nurturing environment that supports the full potential of the child so that every child is ready for school on day one. We accomplish this by implementing a 2Gen approach in our programs.

Parenting the Love and Logic Way
Catholic Charities offers a parenting class that provides practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children. The authors of “Parenting the Love and Logic Way® (Charles Fay, PhD. and Foster Cline, M.D.) state that Love and Logic is a way for parents to take control of the home, while at the same time teaching kids to be responsible, think for themselves and be prepared for the real world. Class participants (including parents, grandparents, foster parents and educators) learn many parenting skills in the class through the use of education, interactive discussion, videos, assignments and role-modeling.
