+  Catholic Charities West Michigan v. Michigan Department of Health and Human Services

  • Description: Catholic Charities West Michigan is one of the largest social services providers in West Michigan, and has been serving for over 70 years. In just the past 10 years, it has placed over 4,500 children in loving homes, while providing a wide array of child welfare services, including a vital foster care program. As a Catholic organization, Catholic Charities believes and adheres to the teachings and doctrines of the Catholic Church, including its beliefs about marriage. Even though state law explicitly protects Catholic Charities’ freedom to act according to its faith, Michigan’s newly elected Attorney General Dana Nessel previously criticized that law as a “victory for the hate mongers” and is now openly flouting it to punish Catholic Charities for its Catholic identity and beliefs.
