Ah, New Year’s, the annual time for ball drops, classy parties, and trying to remember what Auld Lang Syne means. And this year, the date change is not without a little bit of controversy. Depending on whom you ask, 2020 is either the first year of the new decade or the last year of the old decade.
It’s the spiciest calendrical debate since Y2K. But no matter what decade you think it is, we can all agree on this: the fresh page on your calendar is a chance for a fresh start. And what better way to start the New Year (or decade) than to make a resolution to get more involved with your community?
Our resolution this year is to find new ways to bring stability and hope to the vulnerable. We’d love for you to join us in that work!
Volunteer With Us!
One of the great things about volunteering is that it fits so many of those New Year’s resolutions. Whether you’re a people person or a behind-the-scenes supporter, there’s an opportunity for you on our volunteer webpage.
Do you want to make a difference in the lives of kids? We have plenty of ways you can help parents bond with their kids through CAPA or instill good eating and exercise habits in kids through Food For All.
Are you taking a break from social media to build more real-life friendships? Senior Services can use your help spending time with seniors, either helping them out around the house or driving them to appointments.
Do you want to give back to the community that’s given you so much? There are many ways to get involved at our Spokane shelters, the House of Charity, St. Margaret’s Shelter and Rising Strong. You can serve meals, distribute resources, run a kids’ afterschool club, or help celebrate holidays and other big events.
Work With Us!
Maybe you’ve resolved to take the next step in your career or to find a job where you can give back every day. Check out ApplicantStack to find out where you fit in at Catholic Charities.
Are you interested in working one-on-one with people experiencing homelessness? Jobs at our shelters offer you the chance to build relationships with our most vulnerable neighbors and provide the compassion and support they need. The House of Charity, St. Margaret’s and Rising Strong are all hiring.
Are you an educator? St. Anne’s Children & Family Center is looking for energetic teachers and aides to deliver one of the highest quality early childhood education programs in Washington.
Maybe you’d like to be part of the comprehensive programming located in our apartment complexes. The Housing and Housing Stabilization departments are looking for professionals to help provide a safe and supportive environment.
If you prefer to support your fellow staff members rather than work directly with clients, we need you, too! Our Development Department is hiring staff to build a strong foundation for our work.
Happy New Year!
If your resolution is to help your community, we hope you’ll come help us do it! But no matter what your resolution is, we wish you a successful, happy and healthy New Year!
