Spread the word
There are many ways to serve your neighbors in need through Catholic Community Services. Please consider pursuing one of our exciting volunteer opportunities to champion the positive development of children and adults, strengthen families and build community.

Join the Safe Families Movement

Safe Families for Children is a network of volunteer host families that extends the community safety net by providing parents with a loving respite home where they can safely place their children in times of crisis, such as illness, incarceration, homelessness, substance abuse or domestic violence.

You can volunteer to be a host family or family coach within an existing Safe Families ministry, or you can start a new ministry within your own congregation.

Join a Work to End Poverty Job Sharing Team

Work to End Poverty is a social enterprise operated by Catholic Community Services Foundation. It is an innovative temporary employment agency that helps build pathways to self-sufficiency for parents seeking to break through the barriers of poverty and raise their children well, youth transitioning out of foster care and adults with disabilities. It is the missing link between short-term fixes and life-changing solutions.

As a participant, you develop knowledge of businesses and professions that you might otherwise never have the opportunity to learn about. You also meet other community-minded people who share your commitment to helping others.

Please fill out a Work to End Poverty Volunteer Interest Form and tell us what you are qualified for and love to do. We will meet with you to learn what type of job sharing would work well for you. Then, we’ll do our best to create a great job match for you. The expected length of donated service is anywhere from 3 to 12 months.

You can also start your own Work to End Poverty Team with your friends or family. Typical teams consist of 10 people, with each person working 4 hours per week in order to fill a typical Monday through Friday business week schedule.

Contact Work to End Poverty for more information at W2EP@ccswv.org or 503-856-7015.
