I came to Catholic Charities through a temp agency to help fill in as a receptionist. I knew the first day I walked through the front door that I was where I was supposed to be. It was a feeling of true caring and concern for the clients who walked through the door. Catholic Charities may represent the Diocese of Lacrosse, but there is no line separating all the souls that enter our offices looking for assistance. There is no judgment or criticisms, just genuine concern for what is best for the client. After my time as a receptionist, I became the Warming Center Coordinator. This only heightened my experiences with caring and giving to the least. Once again, no judgment, only acceptance! It’s hard to put into words the feelings and knowledge that comes only from within, but that is what I have working for Catholic Charities. I truly am blessed to have been excepted into this Catholic Charities family.
I really enjoy working at Catholic Charities because I like helping people. My current job allows me to help my co-workers get the tools they need to be more effective in the services they provide to our clients.
Before I started working for Catholic Charities, I was a little hesitant because I had never worked for a faith-based organization before and quite honestly, I didn’t know what to expect! I can proudly say I am glad that I accepted the opportunity to work here. Catholic Charities has opened up my eyes to the needs of people in our surrounding communities. We accept everyone who comes to our door in need, to work for us or to volunteer for us, regardless of faith, age or race. Every day at work involves doing something different and enables me to be creative through our social media, website and marketing materials. I can truly say I love the work I do and enjoy being a part of the Catholic Charities family!
Catholic Charities is a great place to work! I have grown so much personally, professionally and spiritually since I’ve been here. Their mission is God’s mission. You are God’s hands and feet in making a significant difference in the lives of His people in need and living on the margins.
I love working at Catholic Charities. For years I was a volunteer at a Domestic Abuse program and now I get paid for what I did as a volunteer. Isn’t that a dream job? I work with wonderful people. The agency supports my efforts to help survivors of domestic abuse increase their safety and decrease their isolation. Early in my tenure here, I read the phrase about welcoming each person who approaches us as we would Christ to our table and I knew I was at the right place.
