What is the mission of your organization?
SERVE the community to in turn serve the vulnerable. We serve and we invite the community to serve the poor, just as Jesus invited us to do as He washed the feet of the apostles
ENLIGHTEN the community to see God’s love for the poor. Catholic Charities is not limited to the staff performing human services. Our larger purpose is to provide for the faithful of the Archdiocese and the community to serve the poor. Our first action is outreach to volunteers and parishes to actively participate in our programs and to both understand and live Catholic Social Doctrine.
EMPOWER the community so all God’s Children rise from spiritual and material poverty. Our serving is not aimed at enabling those who are suffering to continue in the same situation. We serve with the goal of all God’s children rising from their spiritual and material poverty. We also empower the affluent to rise from the poverty of materiality by serving others.

Su Casa Health Fairs:
Food For All Mobile Food Pantries: Every week, Catholic Charities travels to food deserts and sets up a one-day pantry at churches and community spaces in five Ohio counties: Clermont, Clinton, Highland, Brown, and Adams.
Volunteers are needed for pantry days to assist with set- up, distribution, and tear down. Pantries are open 11am-1pm and volunteers are expected to stay from 9:30-1:30pm.

After School Programs:
We need tutors, mentors, and homework helpers for students in grades K-3. We prefer that volunteers are present at least 2x/month so they
have the opportunity to build positive relationships with the kids.

Vacaciones Utiles: VU is an educational enrichment summer camp for Hispanic/Latino children in our community entering preschool through second grade. It offers academic preparation, health and fitness, art and music, teaching and reinforcing social skills. Volunteers are needed to help run the program during the summer.

Donation Drives: School Supplies, Coats, Winter Wear
