Nothing is ever too much to do for a child.

How We Can Help
Clothing and other baby essentials are available for our tiniest children.
Angel Layettes are provided at area hospitals to any parents whose child did not survive birth.
Low-income families can receive new winter clothing, shoes, and dental supplies, as well as books and gently used items, for their children aged 1-14.
Children entering foster care receive a large personalized tote offering the security of new clothing and comfort items.
Scholarships are awarded to eligible CCS clients to further their education.
SUCCESS is a supportive partnership with St. Adalbert Catholic School in South Bend.
Layette of Hope
A Layette of Hope is a small gift of reminding a newly pregnant woman of the life she now carries.
