Our People


At the heart of what Catholic Charities does is people. People seeking help, people offering help, and people who believe that we are all a community of neighbors, here in Central Minnesota. The most important people to us are our clients: those who we humbly serve.
Annually, over 3,000 people volunteer their time with Catholic Charities. Some visit us once for a few hours, others have made volunteering a full-time job. Nearly all tell us they receive more than they give. We appreciate the efforts of each and every one of them, and encourage you to join their ranks.

A job at Catholic Charities is much more than a job, it’s a way of making a difference in the lives of your neighbors every single day. Our 600 employees have hearts as big as Central Minnesota, and are grounded in their work by our mission. Learn more about becoming an employee.
Catholic Charities Leadership Council is charged with steering our organization through the day to day challenges of serving our community. Meet our leaders.
Catholic Charities Board of Directors assure that the organization fulfills its mission, and uses its resources wisely. Individual Board members contribute their expertise and experience to carry out these responsibilities as well as serve as ambassadors to help Catholic Charities be better known to members of the community.
