Helping your neighbors in need.


Catholic Charities helps those in need in southwest Iowa 24 hours a day, seven days per week. With that kind of schedule, we need the help of volunteers to support this ambitious mission.

While most of our direct client work is done by trained staff, we need the support of many others to help cook, clean, gather, sort, plan, and more! Orientation and training will be provided. We hope you will consider this noble task of caring for those in need.
