About Children's Service Society of Utah

Children’s Service Society of Utah empowers families and caregivers through services that support the safety and well-being of children.

Founded in 1884, Children’s Service Society of Utah is the oldest non-denominational nonprofit in the state that focuses on children and families.

CSS is an experienced community resource providing individualized services for those who are responsible for the welfare of a child, including expectant parents, families and caregivers that benefit from mentoring, training and information to ensure child well-being. CSS provides comprehensive wrap-around services through our programs of Adoption, Grandfamilies and Home Visitation to ensure that children and families with complex needs benefit from a coordinated care planning process.
