Motivated by faith, Catholic Social Services helps poor and vulnerable seniors and families reach their potential.

For 77 years, Catholic Social Services (CSS) has been empowering people in need, regardless of faith or background, with the tools they need to reach their full potential. We are an antipoverty agency focused on helping working-poor families stabilize and build a better tomorrow and on helping low-income seniors age with grace and independence.

Each year, Catholic Social Servicesā€™ 13 programs help 25,000 people in our 23-county region. Our holistic approach to client service is designed to help people use their own strengths and leverage the resources of the community to reach their goals. We do this while sparking hope, respecting dignity, and acknowledging worth.
