At Catholic Social Services we provide help and create hope for over 3,100 people every day. Our network of programs offers support to those who need it most. Every day we help the homeless & hungry, at-risk youth, struggling families & single parents. We help immigrants, refugees, neglected children and those with intellectual disabilities. We provide programs for pregnant teens, and court-adjudicated delinquents.
We carry out our work to transform lives, envisioning a world touched by God’s mercy, a world where every individual is valued, families are healthy and strong, communities are united, poverty and need are alleviated, and all people share justly in the blessings of God’s creation.
Our work is guided and inspired by our Core Values:
Compassion: genuine care & heartfelt concern for those we serve
Dignity: respect for each person as created in God’s image
Charity: generosity toward all in response to God’s goodness
Justice: defense & advocacy for the rights of the poor and vulnerable
Excellence: professional competence & responsible stewardship

We love going in the front door of Mercy Hospice; it is a very happy and hopeful place, and staff are so giving of themselves and enthusiastic in serving the women and children there.
I give my time on the CSS Board because I believe in and support its mission, and am proud how the lives of children are improved because of the services we provide to them and their families.
