Extend a Hand. Change a Life.

Volunteer Opportunities


"I have been volunteering at Catholic Charities for 13 years. I continue to volunteer because I get more out of it than I give. I have the opportunity to make a small difference in someone’s life and at the same time see God’s hand at work with the outstanding staff." D. R. – Volunteer

Over 400 volunteers impact our mission by opening their arms and helping our clients achieve their full potential. Catholic Charities’ dedicated volunteers lend a hand and provide hope for changing the lives of over 11,000+ children, women and men in our Northern Kentucky communities. Without your help, it would be impossible for us to feed the hungry, provide shelter for the homeless, and comfort those in despair.

We invite you to activate your faith and help carry out Christ’s mission to help those in need. Select one or more volunteer opportunities below to learn how you can help change a life.
