Family Services Department

Coming Soon!

Catholic Social Service of Rapid City has exciting news! Our Family Services Department will soon be known as Trinity Pregnancy and Adoption!

Catholic Social Services has made the decision to re-brand our family services department. The department will be called Trinity Pregnancy and Adoption. With this name change, our adoption and pregnancy services will expand statewide across South Dakota.  Trinity Pregnancy and Adoption will continue to provide the same great adoption services through Catholic Social Services but refocus our program to better serve all parties of the adoption triad (birth parents, adoptive parents, and adopted children) across South Dakota in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
