Refugee Resettlement Program
In light of our nation's humble beginnings and Jesus' call to embrace the stranger, the Office of Refugee Resettlement Services helps to ease human suffering and encourage the self-sufficiency of those newly arrived. We teach the American values of independence and individuality while supporting the tradition of a strong family unit. To learn more about the Refugee Resettlement Program call 856-342-4167.
Volunteers can assist the Refugee Resettlement program by teaching life skills to newcomers, assisting with direct client needs (scheduling appointments, helping clients to appointments, and mentoring) as well assist staff with data entry, research and compiling administrative reports.

In order to meet the material needs of our clients and provide our donors with the opportunity to donate gently used household items and furniture. Catholic Charities operates a Warehouse, which is open to the public two days a week. To learn more about the Warehouse, click here.
Volunteers can assist the Warehouse program by picking up furniture and household items, staffing the warehouse (Tuesdays and Thursdays) or assisting in the office with delivery scheduling, data entry and inventory control.
Maintenance and Repairs
Periodically the buildings we use to serve our clients are in need of repairs, fresh paint, cleaning, or small scale construction projects to enhance services.
Volunteers can assist by building shelves, repairing leaks or cleaning out storage areas in any of our offices throughout the six counties we serve in southern New Jersey.
Many, many, many clients, parishioners, volunteers and diocesan staff visit the Human Service Center each day. We try to warmly welcome each visitor, offer something to drink and make them comfortable as they wait for their appointment.
Volunteers can help answer the phones, greet individuals in person and extend hospitality to all who enter the Human Service Center for appointments and services.
