Programs Offered

Adolescent Substance Abuse Services
Catholic Social Services of the Upper Peninsula will soon offer an intense outpatient substance abuse program aimed at children between the ages of 11-15 and their families. If you believe that your child may be using one or more substances, call our Marquette office to register. More information will be available soon.
Adoption
Catholic Social Services of the Upper Peninsula offers the option of an open adoptive placement.  Screening and counseling are given to both the birthparents and prospective  adoptive couples.  Birthparents choose their adoptive family and, hopefully, a lifelong relationship is established between the birthparents, the adoptive family and their child.
Adoption Home Studies
Catholic Social Services of the Upper Peninsula also works with families who need a home study for an independent or international adoption.  We facilitate MARE adoptions, which places children who are available for adoption from Michigan’s foster care system in adoptive homes.
Strengthening Families Program
This is a 10 session program for families who have been impacted by substance abuse, which helps to improve communication and coping.  Many times family relationships have been damaged or broken by addiction.  This program allows for parents and children (and grandparents where possible) to come together to improve communication and work as a family unit. Babysitting is available for the little ones and dinner is provided at our meetings!  Join us for a new start!
Shoplifter’s Program (Marquette, Delta and Dickinson Counties)
Offers group counseling for shoplifters referred by the court.
