By donating a few hours on a Saturday, you can provide significant aid to legal refugees assigned to Greater Cincinnati. Catholic Charities of Southwest Ohio needs volunteers to sort household donations (morning sessions) and move them to apartments (afternoon sessions). These sessions are in warehouse space rented by Catholic Charities in Lockland.

To sign up to receive Volunteer Spot notifications of needed help, contact Chris Kremer, CCSWOH Housing Coordinator, at 513.241.7745. You can also help by tutoring in English or computer classes at CCSWOH’s office in Roselawn or driving refugees to job interviews, medical appointments, or other needs. For more information, visit
