Refugees Need Your Help

Catholic Community Services of Utah (CCS) and Utah will stand with refugees and immigrants in the wake of the Executive Orders regarding their resettlement and entry into the United States. But we need your help! Here are some things you can do:  

Donate

CCS and the refugees and immigrants we serve need your help now more than ever. Each donation helps to continue our case management and legal services. DONATE NOW 

Advocate

Let your representatives know you do not support a ban on refugee resettlement or a wall separating countries. Call and email them locally and nationally. CONTACT YOUR REP.

Volunteer

More than anything, newly arrived refugees need a friend. Volunteer with CCS and help them navigate their new world in America, show them they are welcome and loved. Volunteers are needed in many different capacities. To get involved email  or click here for more information.

Become a Foster Parent

CCS offers a unique opportunity, not available anywhere else in the State. Through our Refugee Foster Care program, we resettle unaccompanied refugee minors and place them in foster homes in our community. These are children who have been separated from their families, left orphaned by war, migrated alone, or trafficked. Alone they have made their way to refugee camps and placed in our care. You can help by giving them a chance at a happy childhood and a bright future. Email or click here for more information.
