Refugees Need Your Help

We are deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold the portion of the Trump Administration’s travel ban that halts the admittance of refugees to safety in the United States. 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, this ruling 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. 

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.
