Supportive Family Services (SFS), a program of Catholic Social Services, was formed in 2020 to provide holistic support to families with a variety of needs through classes, coaching, and skill-building. SFS also provides reunification services and resources to families who we have facilitated an adoption plan with previously. Through these services, SFS hopes to provide support to build strong, healthy families.
