Thank you for considering volunteering with us! Volunteers are essential in fulfilling our mission here at Catholic Charities. They help us ensure that the stranger gets welcomed, the senior is looked after, the hungry are fed, and the children are served.

Catholic Charities constantly evolves to meet the needs of the community, and so do the jobs of our volunteers. You can help us provide services to those in need regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic status. Give your time and share your talent with Catholic Charities. All are welcome!
