All of Catholic Charities volunteer positions can be discovered by visiting our online volunteer portal.

We have opportunities where you can be safely involved—volunteer virtually, help from home, deliver goods, and more.

Quick Portal Tour

Step 1

Explore your Options

Upon visiting the portal, you will arrive at the dashboard home page where the searching takes place. There is a “Search” panel in the left side bar that allows you to search opportunities by programs, skills/interests, physical activity level, duration, location, and availability. Select one of the rows to expose a list of options and click on your selection. Details and additional subcategories or programs will appear for you to choose from.

My love for this population and my desire to help them came from experiencing the kindness of strangers on my own travels. There's something special about welcoming a stranger to your country, and hearing their stories.
