to Caritas in Upperaustria!
Our mission
Help in times of need. Help in everyday life.
The main aim of our work is to enable people
to look after themselves on their own.
We help anyone, regardless of creed, colour,
political tendencies or personal debt.
We respect peoples‘ dignity and accept them as they are.
We do not work with their deficits, but with their resources.
„… We believe it‘s our mission to sharpen the social
conscience of both society and the church. Therefore we
strive forwards beeing socio-politicaly responsible for the
welfare of all walks of life, throughout society, country and
church, wherever we consider it necessary.“
Caritas-Director, Mathias Mühlberger
