Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers enable us to economically carry out our mission by assisting staff and participating in our programs.

Adult Day Center

Our Adult Day Center supports adults in maintaining independence for living in their own home and community. We provide daily opportunities for people age 18+ who have medical conditions, physical disabilities, cognitive concerns, Alzheimer’s or other memory loss conditions - to socialize, participate in fun activities, and receive care during the day; while their primary caregiver can take care of chores, remain employed, or have some rest and relaxation.

The center is open M-F from 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and we need volunteers to be greeters and to assist staff with recreational activities and events for our members. Please contact Nichole Kraemer at (608) 663-7117 x8106 or email nkraemer@ccmadison.org if you interested or would like more information.

Adult Residential Living

Play board and card games, go fishing, cook a meal, run an errand, be a friend, go to a movie or out to eat, discuss sports, politics, or religion. If you enjoy any of these activities we have wonderful volunteer opportunities for you with our Adult Residential Living program. We provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injury. What is a traumatic brain injury? Many brain injuries are the result of motor vehicle accidents. Whatever the cause, a brain injury can often result in enduring physical, emotional, intellectual, and social changes. Survivors of brain injury often must "start all over." A few hours of your time can be instrumental in helping to rebuild their life. Adult volunteers only please.

If you are interested in volunteering for this program please call Kris Dambach at (608) 826-8030 or email kdambach@ccmadison.org for more information.

Community Connections

Are you interested in working with adults with developmental disabilities? Volunteer in a fun, fast-paced environment and help others achieve personal successes. Our Community Connections center in Janesville has volunteer opportunities in our leisure day program for adults with developmental disabilities. As a volunteer, you will work with our staff to assist participants with daily community integration or recreation. This could mean one day you go to the park and to the movies the next. Explore your talents for arts and crafts on a Wednesday and celebrate football season on a Friday! Joel Schenk at (608) 758-8180 or email at joel.schenk@tds.net for more information. 

Winter Day Resource Center for the Homeless

Catholic Charities has partnered with Bethel Lutheran Church to provide a winter day resource and warming center to Madison homeless. The center is open from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and located at 312 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison, WI 53703. Volunteers are needed to help with distributing food, sorting donations, helping in the computer lab, or just visiting with participants. Volunteers must be adults age 18+ and complete a volunteer application, interview, background check, and training. It is preferred that volunteers work in 4 hours shifts from either 8:00 a.m. - 12 noon or 12 noon - 4:00 p.m. but we welcome all volunteers. Potential volunteers are invited to "try it out" and spend one or two hours at the center to discover if they're interested in becoming a volunteer.
