The Morris Cafritz Center for Community Service (MCCCS) organizes high-impact volunteer projects and events that address the unmet needs in the Washington DC area. For over 25 years MCCCS has enabled volunteering in our community. Our volunteers have the opportunity to enrich the lives of others as well as their own.

Volunteer opportunities are open to all. MCCCS provides support to the DC community in need regardless of age, race, gender, disability, or religion.

Know a teenager looking for something to do this summer? One who might also want to earn community service hours? Tell them to join us and make a difference in someone’s life—including their own.
Service includes food preparation, helping the homeless, visiting with seniors, community clean-up and more! Counselors and special education teachers work closely with campers to make this inclusive camp accessible to all teens.
