Volunteer at Catholic Charities
For the health and safety of the people we serve and our valued volunteers, we are not offering in-person volunteering.
But your time and talent are still very necessary! Help make a difference through the remote opportunities below!
For more than a hundred years, volunteers have been at the heart of Catholic Charities. From the first church members who took in orphans of the 1906 earthquake to current day professionals, students, and retirees of all faiths and backgrounds, Catholic Charities volunteers provide vital support to those most vulnerable in our communities. Volunteerism is woven into the very fabric of this agency – inseparable from our mission of strengthening families and reducing poverty.

We have 30 individuals who are pregnant in our shelter-in-place hotel who will give birth in August and September. These new parents need essential items as they welcome their babies into our community. Give their infants a safe and healthy start in life infants safe and healthy with newborn necessities like formula, diapers and more. Donate now at babydrive.givesmart.com.

The number of individuals and families experiencing homelessness is increasing due to the economic fallout from COVID-19. The essential food and cleanliness supplies you provide show these neighbors you care. Contact Darlene Wilson at Volunteer@CatholicCharitiesSF.org for a complete list of needs and instruction.
