Volunteer with Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas

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, bi-weekly or monthly commitment.

The opportunities below are available for core volunteers. We greatly appreciate all volunteers who are able to support our mission – in big and small ways.

To view all of our volunteer opportunities, visit our main Volunteer page.
