Welcome to Our Volunteer Portal

Thank you for choosing to volunteer at Catholic Charities! Our organization serves over 120,000 children, men, and women in need each year. We accomplish our critical work with the help of thousands of outstanding volunteers like you! The Catholic Charities Volunteer Program is organized into three basic types of volunteering - one-time events, ongoing opportunities and group opportunities.

Hypothermia season is coming!

Sign up here to join us

Winter is nearly here and we are in need of extra warm hands and hearts to help our staff accommodate the influx of residents that will be staying at our shelters. Volunteers are needed to spend one evening a week from November through April helping to welcome residents, assign beds, distribute linens, serve dinner and more at one of our low barrier shelters for men.

Who Do We Serve?

Clients at Catholic Charities come from all walks of life - ages, races, religions, and ethnic backgrounds. Many suffer from extreme poverty, and we work closely with them to address its underlying causes: unemployment, addiction, education, domestic abuse, severe health issues, and more. To each man, woman, and child who comes to our doors, we strive to offer the best services possible, meeting their immediate needs while empowering them to take steps towards self-sufficiency.
