Ways to Volunteer
Volunteers are central to all of our community programs.
Volunteering is a great opportunity not only to support our community programs, but also to serve and build community with our neighbors experiencing poverty and homelessness issues.
Scheduling is flexible, but volunteers and groups are asked to schedule their commitments prior to participating. We also host a large number of high school, college, and parish groups, and we are always looking for groups and organizations interested in creating a partnership with Saint André Bessette Catholic Church.
* Volunteers must be at least 18 years old unless accompanied by a parent/guardian or part of a chaperoned school group.
