Catholic health care organizations serve immigrants, including refugees and victims of human trafficking, in their clinics, emergency rooms, and in their facilities. Catholic health care also employs many people who have fled their homeland, seeking a better life for themselves and their communities.
As part of the Catholic health ministry, the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA) shares this commitment to helping those who have come to the United States from other countries. Through outreach, education, and advocacy, CHA speaks out on behalf of health care access for immigrants and collaborates with other organizations in "welcoming the stranger among us."
