OASHF- Catholic Social Services
Catholic Social Services is a faith-based social service agency focused on improving the quality of life for people of all faiths and backgrounds throughout Central and Southern Ohio. CSS helps vulnerable people at their most vulnerable times. Our programs are focused to strengthen families, guide individuals toward economic stability and serve as the extended family giving care and support to seniors. The Friendly Visitor program will utilize adults and families to provide support and one-on-one assistance to adults in need of companionship, running errands, and respite care. Through these services, adults with physical, emotional, or mental disabilities can maintain or regain a higher level of independence. A Friendly Visitor will be assigned one or two clients and expected to volunteer one or three hours per week, depending on the need of the client. The Marketing and Development department helps familiarize the community with agency programs and provides for opportunities for people to support services. The focus of this department is to enhance the public image of the agency, as well as solicit funding through campaigns and fund-raising events. The agency provides both print and electronic communications, with newsletters, an annual report and periodic email blasts. The development office conducts 3 fund-raising events each year.
