Inspired by the words of Jesus Christ, “Be like the Son of Man who has came not be served but to serve, and to give his life to redeem many:. (Mt. 20:8), the Diocesan Social Service Society of the Diocese of Sambalpur has been instrumental in making some significant and positive changes in the life of the poor and marginalized, on social, economical, educational & health sectors. The name “Social Service Society” emphasizes its character of service to the disadvantaged irrespective of caste, creed, culture and gender. The Diocese has progressed extremely well in empowering people through SHG’s saving and credit system as well as environment related programme. Our empowering process with our key stake holders - the poor and the marginalized, must lead to social equity, gender equity and equality of opportunity for all, so that we may be able to ensure a dignified living for all the target people of our area.

Sambalpur Social service Society (SSSS) is a Non-governmental Organization (NGO) seeking to establish a just and self reliant society, targeting the people who are most needy and poor and who belong to the backward sections of the society. In spite of many efforts by government and other non-governmental organizations to uplift the people and society, there still remain a lot of things to do. Hence the Catholic Church belonging to the Diocese of Sambalpur extends its social responsibility to the society and nation through different kinds of humanitarian activities through its social service organization, health service institutions, educational institutions etc. SSSS is the social service organization of the Catholic Diocese of Sambalpur.
