Have handled a number of immigration cases as a volunteer for Catholic Charties' Cabrini Clinic. What a fantastic group. They do an excellent job of screening the cases for merit and provide excellent support. Always amazed by the number of client's they help. Super, meaningful work.

I decided to become a volunteer at Catholic Charities because of its great impact in our community. This organization it is not just about religion, it is about helping anyone in need.

Share Your Blessings is one of its programs and I was part of it last year. This program is about making sure difficult times do not affect a child’s Christmas experience. After the first meeting when we were told what the program was about, I was so excited that decided to help recruit more volunteers. Other days we sorted gifts, labeled gift bags, and finally distributed them.

Catholic Charities was awesome! Every volunteer was so sweet and thankful to have us help volunteer with them. We helped a lot of people that day and it was a great feeling. They always have new events going on where they help more and more people. I'm glad I stumbled across Catholic Charities to volunteer for.

I have been a minor donor to a Catholic order in another state and was impressed to learn that my intended recipient (an orphanage in Honduras) received 100% of my donation. That was heartwarming to me. As a non-Catholic that was my first experience with Catholic Charities.
My experience as a volunteer at the new Catholic Charities Mamie George Community Center in Richmond has added richness to my life, because I have met so many genuinely kind people there.

Over the years I have lent my time and volunteer efforts to several nonprofit organizations in the Houston area. My experience as a volunteer for Catholic Charities has been wonderful. They were unbelievably kind, supportive and appreciative of everything.
