Help Us Make A Difference: Volunteer!
The work of Catholic Charities is firmly rooted in the rich gospel tradition of Catholic Social Teaching. Our mission is to serve those most in need of help. We welcome and coordinate hundreds of volunteers who play a critical role by giving their time and energy to serve the poor and vulnerable among us.
Volunteers are a valuable resource to Catholic Charities staff and the people we assist. Catholic Charities seeks to ensure that volunteers have meaningful and fulfilling experiences, have adequate supervision and are treated in a respectful manner. Catholic Charities hosts periodic volunteer recognition events to acknowledge the contributions of those who donate their time to help the poor and vulnerable. Volunteers shall agree to actively perform their duties to the best of their ability and to adhere to the policies and procedures of Catholic Charities.
Volunteers are welcomed without regard to faith, race, ethnicity, marital status or condition in life.
Prior to serving, volunteers must complete an application and volunteer packet.
