Refugees Need Your Help
As details and rulings continue to develop surrounding the entrance of refugee and immigrants in our country continues, the number of refugees admitted to our state has dropped dramatically. As a country founded by those searching for religious freedom, this is a blow to our national identity. Refugees are innocent victims of their situations, whom the United States has the ability and responsibility to care for and protect.
For an already highly vetted population, these decisions will only create more harm and difficulties. As an organization, Catholic Community Services of Utah will continue to advocate and fight for those who are the true voiceless casualties of this decision. We call on our community to stand with us in this fight and defend the freedoms we hold so dearly as a nation.
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

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.
