Catholic Social Services

of Montgomery

Catholic Social Services (CSS) is an organized expression of the Church’s concern for social justice and well-being, extended to all, regardless of one’s race, creed, or background. Our ministries include Direct Aid to the needy, St. Margaret’s Services for the Elderly, Immigration Assistance and Adoption Services. We provide assistance with utilities, food, clothing, medication and transportation to those in Montgomery and 11 surrounding counties. We assist with errands, medical appointments, wellness visits, and deliver food to elderly clients. We continue to provide community outreach and advocacy for our immigrant population. In 2017 alone, we provided assistance to over 3,100 clients, making a significant difference in their lives and often helping to prevent them from becoming homeless. We are fortunate to be supported by many volunteers, businesses, and a dedicated staff.

From our Clients

Jeff,

I just wanted to say Thank You so much for helping to ease my burden. It was absolutely amazing the difference it made in my life. I was able to pay a couple of bills and to buy some decent groceries. Till someone has been forced by situations to try and live off a government supplement, one deos not really know the stress that accommodates such. Thank you again, Jeff and I may call upon you again.

– Rick

“ I am a single mother of three. My son was in a coma for a long time and sadly he just passed away. With that unfortunate incident, I missed a lot of days work. I am a night shift cashier in one of the gas stations. I work hard and try  my best to support my family.

Recently, I came to CSS seeking for help with my very large water bill due to a leak. CSS assisted me with my water bill and also with my power bill! It was indeed a blessing. My other son is about to go back to work and he will be able to contribute to the household expenses.

I am very grateful to the CSS management and staff for helping my family. May the Lord bless the work He put in your hands…”
