At Catholic Social Services, we choose involvement over indifference. We choose charity that overcomes challenges. At Catholic Social Services, we act for good to change lives in our community.
We invite you to support our mission.
Your gift will provide opportunities and resources for children to succeed. You will help provide for families to grow healthy and strong. You will give seniors a life with dignity. You will provide for individuals with intellectual disabilities to live a productive life. And you will help communities to find the resilience to believe in a better future.
