Volunteering is one of the single most rewarding things you can do with your time. St. Vincent Catholic Charities offers a wide range of opportunities for you to get involved and make a difference in your community.  We know your time is precious and we will work with you to help provide a volunteer experience that fits your personal mission, time and talents. 




Giving freely of your time and talents to help those in need is simply a good hearted thing to do. But with good choices come wonderful benefits.

GAIN EXPERIENCE! Volunteerism gives you the opportunity to gain experience and improve life skills that can be used in your professional and personal life.

ATTRACT EMPLOYERS AND COLLEGES! Employers and schools are always looking for candidates with a variety of skill sets and experience; volunteer experience is a key component on applications and resumes.

EDUCATE! When you volunteer with those we serve, you will learn more about your own culture as well as theirs. Many of those we serve are refugees who are coming to the U.S.A. for the first time. You will learn stories from around the world, experience new foods, music and communication.

STRENGTHEN YOUR COMMUNITY! For every small action we take to improve the lives of our neighbors, there is a ripple effect. Through empowering children and families, fostering housing stability, enhancing quality of life, you are advancing our community health.

PROVIDE HELP, CREATE HOPE! Children are completely vulnerable to their surroundings. We are raising adults and they are learning based on what they see and hear around them. Our leaders of tomorrow are being molded today. We are each a part of this, so it is vitally important to make our part count.
