For more than 50 years, the staff and volunteers of Catholic Social Services have carried out the mission of bringing the unconditional love and hope of Christ to people in need.
In Edmonton and communities throughout central Alberta, CSS offers ministries that provide help and create hope for women and children escaping domestic violence; for women facing crisis pregnancies; for men and women challenged by substance abuse and mental health issues; for youth searching for a place to call home; for people living with HIV and AIDS; for families in need of counselling and mediation; and for newcomers to Canada seeking acceptance and guidance.
Catholic Social Services strives to serve, as Pope Francis encourages, as a ‘hospital on the battlefield,’ caring for people who have experienced great loss – loss of home, loss of community, loss of self-esteem, loss of control, and perhaps worst of all – loss of hope.
Your contributions through Together We Serve will assist Catholic Social Services in identifying, developing, and sustaining the ministries that help us in our common goal to honour and protect the dignity and the sanctity of human life.
Simply stated – your gift to Catholic Social Services brings hope.
