“It was because of people’s contribution to CSA that I was able to get therapy and to continue with therapy until it changed my life.

I was forced to retire due to health problem and lost my sense of purpose. I fell into a bad depression. I had no insurance and was paying out of pocket for therapy. My therapist talked to me about assistance I could receive from Catholic Human Services.” – Katie Blaauw from Grayling

Catholic Human Services provide mental health, substance abuse, prevention, pregnancy counseling, open adoption, social services, and senior services to over 26,000 people per year.

Funding from the CSA helps support Catholic Human Services' programs, which serve those who most in need in our community.
