So, you are anxious and ready to roll up your sleeves and volunteer at St. Catherine's Center for Children. Well, we are ready to talk to you!

St.  Catherine’s has a number of volunteer opportunities. Opportunities vary from small projects that can be completed in a few hours to ongoing commitments that may last longer. You can volunteer on your own or as a group. Volunteer opportunities depend on the needs of the agency and the desires of each volunteer. 

At St. Catherine's, we receive many inquiries about specific projects for our children and families. Below are some of the volunteer opportunities that have been available at St. Catherine's:
