Catholic Social Services’ Archbishop’s Benefit for Children
Motivated by our Catholic faith, Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia (CSS) has been entrusted to provide children in the Greater Philadelphia region with the resources they need to learn and grow in a nurturing environment. Gifts made to the Archbishop’s Benefit for Children, an initiative of the Catholic Charities Appeal, support the daily operations and special projects of over a dozen CSS programs that provide help and create hope for thousands of children and youth each year, including children of veteran households and immigrant families. In addition, CSS offers a full range of support services for pregnant mothers and their newborn children.
Out-of-School-Time Programs enrich the lives of students by providing afterschool academic support and a variety of cultural and recreational activities that serve as outlets to showcase their talents and skills.
Casa del Carmen Preschool Academy is a high quality, bilingual, PHLpreK program, located in the Hunting Park neighborhood of Philadelphia. It offers a fun and safe place for children ages 3-5.
Each year, The Archbishop’s Benefit for Children Christmas Party hosts a celebration for hundreds of children who are served by CSS.
