Volunteer

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada!


A Message from our Volunteer Manager

Dear Volunteers,

Many of you received a postcard in the mail letting you know we were planning to open on-campus volunteer opportunities this July. In accordance with Governor Sisolak’s directives, we will continue to suspend in-person volunteer opportunities at this time. Although we had hoped to reopen our campus to volunteers sooner, we recognize the need to operate in a mode of flexibility and will continue to prioritize the safety of our clients, employees, and volunteers. No one in our community can predict the course of this current crisis, but please know we are closely monitoring both the rise in daily cases as well as the direction and phases given by the governor.

Over the past few months, our team has been working to create remote volunteer opportunities for those who want to keep giving their time and talents. We ask anyone interesting in volunteering to please consider supporting our agency in one of these ways. New opportunities can be found below under Remote Service Opportunities. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions by emailing volunteer@catholiccharities.com or by calling 702-405-0597.

We hope you will continue to stay safe and keep in touch. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we thoughtfully navigate these uncertain times together.

Sincerely,

Natasha Nelson
Volunteer and Outreach Manager
