For more than 20 years, Catholic Legal Services has lived by its core mission to care for our staff, the agency, our clients and the
community. This enduring mission guides us as we face the difficult challenge of responding to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which
the World Health Organization declared a pandemic on Wednesday, March 12, 2020.
Please know that we are vigilantly monitoring the COVID-19 situation. We will remain fully operational during this time. However, we
believe it is crucial to listen to the advice of our Public Health officials. It is also important to have plans in place. Education and
precautions are the strongest tools against infection. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 website. CLICK HERE TO GO TO CDC.
