At Catholic Charities we believe that each person is endowed with the desire to love and care for others, especially those who society marginalizes and who need assistance. So, we incorporate volunteers from all walks of life into our work. Check out all the opportunities to get involved below. Read more about why we engage volunteers here

Ways to Volunteer

Check out our calendar of regular activities to help out for a couple of hours. Sign up and show up at the volunteer event. No orientation required!

VOLUNTEER CALENDAR

Volunteer for a defined role for at least 75 hours or 6 months, such as mentoring, behind the scenes help, and pro bono professional roles. These roles require a background check, references, and attendance at Volunteer Orientation but you have the opportunity to get more involved and do impactful work.
