Catholic Charities’ Volunteer Resources
Volunteerism not only provides needed human resources for Catholic Charities, but it allows us to offer more compassionate services to people in need. In return, we attempt to provide all of our volunteers with an enriching experience that matches their interests and enhances the quality of their lives.
Whether you are looking to volunteer on an ongoing basis or just for a few hours, Catholic Charities has a wide range of volunteer opportunities available for individuals or groups.To learn about the volunteer opportunities that might be available click here.
