“And the King will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’”

Matthew 25:40

We Need Your Help

Volunteers are at the foundation of Catholic Charities of Central Louisiana. Our intent is to plug you into an area where you can connect your talents to the community's needs. We hope that you feel a deep sense of purpose as you give back to the people of God.

“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?’ ‘Here I am,’ I said; ‘send me!’”   Isaiah 6:8

Here at Catholic Charities, we work hard every day to ensure your donations go as far as possible. We know that sometimes it's tough to find the time or money to help those in need, but with our help, you can make a real and lasting difference in the lives of others. 

“Like the Good Samaritan, Catholic Charities provides comprehensive care to anyone in need. We care for others not because they are Catholic, but because we are.”
