Most likely: Bad bendex spring or starter solenoid. May be replaceable independently, but frequently integral part of starter. But, before anything else just make sure all your connections, including those at the battery, are clean and tight.

Can a bad starter keep your alternator and battery from charging?

YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.

What causes the starter to click on a 1995 Serria?

My understanding is that you are hearing the starter "click" but it does not engage.
