Caritas is excited to launch the inaugural Caritas Day to celebrate our 70th anniversary as a premier social services agency! Caritas Day will consist of 24 hours of support for the mission of Caritas Family Solutions and the numerous successes experienced by the many individuals, children, and families served throughout Southern Illinois since 1947.
