Women’s Board Mission Statement

The mission of the Women’s Board of Catholic Charities, Lake County Services is to raise funds for Catholic Charities programs and services in Lake County, provide opportunities for volunteerism, and increase awareness of Catholic Charities within the Archdiocese of Chicago.






Since 1989 the Women’s Board was helped Catholic Charities Lake County through fundraising, volunteerism, and raising community awareness of the vital programs offered to the hungry, poor, and homeless. Driven to support the neediest in Lake County, a small group of women formed a partnership with Catholic Charities and established the first Women’s Board. Raising funds for Catholic Charities in Lake County, increasing awareness of Catholic Charities within the Archdiocese of Chicago, and providing opportunities for volunteerism became their threefold mission. Today, the Board is 150+ members strong with many of the women passing their love of Catholic Charities onto the next generation.
