Volunteer Opportunities

Helping another person brings a wonderful feeling of joy and satisfaction. At Catholic Community Services, volunteers help elderly and disabled persons remain living independently in their own homes. They also serve food to the hungry, tutor youth struggling in school, assist the staff of CCS day care and early learning centers, and do much, much more!

CCS volunteers come from all segments of the population. Many are fully employed; others are homemakers, young people and retired persons. All bring a gift of caring and time. “Being a volunteer is truly one of the greatest gifts of my life,” says Al Jackson, of Volunteer Services.

CCS offers a variety of opportunities to help others, arranged to accommodate volunteers’ schedules. Call today!

Drive weekly or daily; whatever fits your schedule. Must have a valid WA drivers license and clean driving record, and will undergo a WA State Patrol background check.
