Inspiring Hope. Building Futures.

Last year, over 7,400 volunteers helped us serve our neighbors in need.

That’s more than 8 times the number of full time employees at Catholic Charities. Our volunteers are the driving force in our ability to serve 127,000 men, women, and children each year. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to meet the needs of our dynamic and growing volunteer force.

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.
