About Children's Service Society of Utah

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 Parents in Action to ensure that children and families with complex needs benefit from a coordinated care planning process.
