Ways to Volunteer

Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways you can help as a volunteer


Individuals and groups can make an impact on the world and communities by donating their talents to the mission of Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri (CCSOMO).

CCSOMO would be blessed to have you join us in serving the vulnerable.
