Welcome to the Catholic Charities Volunteer Website

Thank you for visiting this website, and wanting to help fulfill our mission of offering charitable assistance to anyone in need across Cook and Lake counties. There are many rewarding volunteer opportunities available throughout the year!

Many volunteers say that they "get" more than they "give" when they help at Catholic Charities. Often volunteers say they have developed lifelong friendships as they volunteer with other kindhearted people, and become part of an organization that has alleviated suffering and had a lasting, positive impact in Chicago for more than 100 years. Perhaps you needed help at one time, and want to return the favor now? You may need service hours at your school or place of work, and you know there will be many opportunities to choose from at Catholic Charities. Maybe you simply believe that, when you help someone in need, you are serving Christ Himself. 

Whatever brought you to this website, know that we sincerely appreciate you sharing your time and talents with us, We could not do the work we do without the generosity of people like you! Let us know if you have questions, comments, or ideas to help make the Catholic Charities Volunteer Experience the best that it can be. Contact info is below. We are grateful for our partnership with you!
