Every child deserves to be placed with a loving family. Catholic Social Services of the U.P. has been doing just that since 1915. CSSUP makes the foster care process simple and easy. The graphic below represents the number of foster care cases CSSUP completed in 2016. That number is expected to grow in 2017.


CSSUP finalized several Adoptions in 2016, and served an average of 20 children and their foster care families each month.

“I believe the best service to the child is the service closest to the child, and children who are victims of neglect, abuse, or abandonment must not also be victims of bureaucracy. They deserve our devoted attention, not our divided attention.” ― Kenny Guinn
