About Catholic Charities
Catholic Charities helps solve the problems of New Yorkers in need—non-Catholics and Catholics alike. We rebuild lives and touch almost every human need promptly, locally, day in and day out, always with compassion and dignity. Catholic Charities helps your neighbors, as you would like to be helped if your family were in need.

As part of our commitment to help struggling New Yorkers, non-Catholic and Catholic alike, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York sees an organization where volunteers work as partners on all levels, and where their contributions are embraced, valued and recognized
To that end, our volunteers are essential in working with staff in delivering Catholic Charities' mission to deliver, coordinate, and advocate for quality human services and programs.
Through technology and trained staff, we strive to provide a more innovative approach to volunteer management in which we will aspire to provide professional managed, flexible and diverse opportunities.
