How to Volunteer

Volunteers at St. Elizabeth’s come from one of our seven sponsoring parishes and the community at large.

If you speak a language in addition to English (including American Sign Language), please mention that skill when contacting the Executive Director.

From time to time, youth groups and college activity clubs have volunteered or led a drive in their community to support St. Elizabeth’s.


If you are interested in volunteering or leading a drive in your community, please contact our Executive Director
