Catholic Social Services’ mission is comprised of three important parts: compassionately serve the poor and those in-need, strengthen individuals and families, and to advocate for social justice.  Everyday we work to help our clients achieve permanent stability.

Sometimes it becomes necessary for us to contact our elected officials and advocate for legislation and funding of services and the assurance of dignity and respect for all Alaskans.  When those opportunities arise, you will find details, updates, and calls to action here.  With our voices united, we can advocate for vulnerable and in-need Alaskans, ensuring that we continue to provide help and create hope for all.

Help Support Agreement to Grant Agreement with Catholic Social Services for Brother Francis Shelter

The Assembly will be voting on an extension and addition to the emergency grant agreement that was signed on August 1, 2019 with CSS in the amount of $400,000 for operation of the BFS. The proposed amendment would provide another $200,000 through the end of calendar year 2020. This funding would go to shelter operations, and help maintain serives.
