Volunteer With Us



You can develop new skills you may not have realized you had! Sometimes we do not need a reason to do something good for someone else, imagine how you will feel helping those in need. It is also a great way to meet new people and connect to those you may not have the opportunity to meet in your normal life. Volunteering with us will allow you to form new connections with your Lake Charles community and other outlying parishes as well. Lastly, even if you volunteer once or on a regular basis, it will have a positive and humbling impact in your life, but a lifelong effect on the people you help.

Simply view our Volunteer Calendar for current openings to see what our needs are at the present. Next, please fill out our Volunteer Form and General Media Release Forms and fill out your information. Lastly, you can email, fax, or drop off the completed paperwork to our office. Once your paperwork is complete then you can begin volunteering!

Please fill out our Volunteer Form and General Media Release forms.

Our volunteer opportunities are ever-changing here at Catholic Charities of Southwest Louisiana. We always need volunteers in the following areas:

Receptionists: We always need a smiling face to welcome clients and to answer the main phone lines during our peak hours.
General Office Help: Stop in and help file, make copies or even organize office supplies.
Warehouse: If you feel like you want to be outside and not inside then come help us stack canned goods, sort donations or help us hand out food on our food days!

On your Volunteer Form, please tell us what times and days you are available.  On our Volunteer Weekly Schedule posted on our Volunteer Page, we will have a calendar that we will update every morning from the previous day so whoever looks on here can see what volunteer opportunities are open! 


After you have filled out your Volunteer Form and General Media Release forms, attend you orientation class here at our office then you can begin your volunteer journey!
