Get Involved

Join us as we help our community realize its full potential.

There are lots of ways to get involved and make a difference with Catholic Charities. There are volunteer and advocacy opportunities, local parish initiatives as well as community events. It’s all about helping fulfill our mission of improving the lives of Marylanders in need.


We rely on the generosity of more than 8,000 volunteers who serve thousands of hours every year. Volunteering with Catholic Charities is a fun, impactful way to contribute to your community. While volunteering, you also can build comradery with your team, teach your children the value of community service or meet others who want to make a change in the world.
