This website is owned and operated by Catholic Social Services (CSS). We recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us and how we treat that information. This Privacy Policy addresses those concerns.

Catholic Social Services seeks to respect and protect the privacy of our website visitors and only gather personal information, such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and/or e-mail addresses, when voluntarily submitted by a website visitor. CSS does not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.

If you no longer wish to receive our postal mailings, please email [email protected] or call Catholic Social Services and ask to speak to the development office to be removed from our mailing list.


At times, CSS may be required by law or legal process to disclose information about you to others. CSS may also disclose information about you if it believes that disclosure is necessary for the public interest and/or safety.


Our site has industry-standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. This makes it difficult for anyone else to intercept the information you send to us. Companies we work with to process credit card transactions also use high-grade encryption and security protocols. CSS will take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information but does not guarantee its confidentiality or security due to the nature of online information.
