IMPACT AREA: CHILDREN AND YOUTH
Catholic Charities offers many services for children and youth, including early childhood education centers, maternity and pregnancy services that provide parenting education to adolescent parents, child welfare services that ensure the safety and well-being of children in tough family situations, and youth mentorship.
Some ways to help:
- Become a Youth Mentor in Back of the Yards or Lake County
- Help kids in the southwest neighborhoods of Chicago get the clothes they need as a Children's Clothing Closet Volunteer
- Help children living in one of our shelters learn to make their own snacks with Happy Chefs
- Organize a Book Drive for the kids in our Child Development Centers
