Serve with us to help those in need and transform our community!

Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas relies on our volunteers and supporters to help provide essential services to those in our 21-county service area.

Individual Volunteer


Looking for a way to make a big impact in a short amount of time? Individual volunteer opportunities are a great way to earn service hours and engage in the community by giving a few hours at a time. These opportunities could lead to a Core Volunteer position.

Group Volunteer


Many hands make light work! Our group volunteer opportunities are perfect for families, church, school, civic and corporate groups to enjoy a time of working together toward a common goal. We provide a wide variety of group volunteer opportunities that support the mission of Catholic Charities. This is a great way to build new connections and learn about other ways to support our neighbors in need.

Core Volunteer


Our core volunteers are the backbone of our work. These volunteers help Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas keep funds within programming by performing tasks that would normally be completed by a paid staff member. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for those who can make an intentional weekly commitment.
