It has been 75 years since The Most Reverend Duane G. Hunt opened the doors to Catholic Charities in Utah. With only four full-time staff members and a $10,000 budget, the employees assisted 30 children that first year through adoption and foster care services. While the needs in Utah have changed over the years, the vision of Catholic Community Service of Utah (CCS) has remained the same: to provide help and create hope to the members of our community when they need it the most. 

In March, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the lives of people around the world overnight, particularly for those that were already experiencing severe hardships. Over the past months, we have seen just how essential the services provided by CCS are, and we are committed to being a beacon of hope as community members battle the challenges of these times. For 75 years, individuals and organizations have supported CCS so that we can help our clients work towards self-sufficiency. You are the people that have made our work possible. Now more than ever, we need your continued support. With it, we can continue to provide much-needed assistance to those that have been affected by the pandemic the most. 

We are grateful to a generous donor who will be matching all donations made before and during the Humanitarian Awards Gala, dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000. Your donation will make twice the difference in the lives of those most in need.

Join us as we celebrate all of the volunteers, donors, partner organizations, and staff members that have made our 75 years of service in the community possible.
