What You Can Do

Volunteer Opportunities


Catholic Social Services of Southern Nebraska offers many opportunities for individuals, families, and parish communities to serve those in need. Volunteers stock the shelves of the St. Francis Food Pantry, which provides meals to more than 1,300 families every year. We provide sack lunches to the homeless and working poor of downtown Lincoln through the St. Teresa of Calcutta Lunch Program. Volunteers teach English to adult learners, and help refugee and immigrant youth with homework at Cristo Rey Catholic Church in Lincoln. All 4 regions of CSS offer an opportunity to serve others and join in our work. Ultimately, we are about service to one another: the disabled, the aged, the newcomer, and the poor among us.
