Client Services Volunteer (in Fresno) - Monday thru Friday
Please consider sharing your time and talents with those in need. Our services have increased by 74% due to the financial devastation families are facing because of COVID-19. As a volunteer, you can help change the lives of our neighbors in crisis during this very uncertain time. Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are not holding Volunteer Orientations at this time. However, you can still begin volunteering with assurance that we have taken several precautionary measures with the heath and safety of our staff and volunteers as our top priority.
Volunteers in our Client Services/Intake Department handle all things administration including reception, data entry, interviewing clients to assess their needs and processing required documents in order to confirm eligibility to receive services.
Volunteers are needed Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Participant Notes: All participants must fill out a volunteer application and are subject to a background check.
To determine eligibility for services, Catholic Charities references the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), which is a measure of income issued every year by the Department of Health and Human Services, and ask that our clients provide us with proof of identification, address and income. All information is input into a computer program before clients are directed to either our Food Pantry/Warehouse or Thrift Store to receive the services they are in need of.
