St. Anne Outreach
Serving the Needs of Our Community for 35 Years
How We Help
Our primary mission is to provide food and clothing to those in great need or in emergency situations. Very limited financial assistance for utilities, rent and prescription costs may also be provided, dependent upon the availability of funds. Our secondary mission is to provide the following items when donated: items for the care of infants, linens and blankets, fans, items for elderly care, toiletries, small household items and school supplies.
Who We Help
We serve families residing in Muscogee County, including single parents, the elderly, displaced families, recovering drug or alcohol addicts, victims of crime/abuse, the medically ill and the mentally or physically disabled.

We have volunteers from many of the Catholic Churches in the Columbus Deanery. Our volunteers range from youth ages 12 and up to retired couples – there are plenty of opportunities to get involved! No special training is needed to volunteer; we will work with you to find what role will be rewarding for you. Youth must review and sign our Youth Volunteer Guidelines before volunteering at Outreach. Most of our volunteers work one or two days Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to Noon. However, we have opportunities on afternoons, weekends and evenings – just let us know when you are available!
