Julie Hasselbeck applied to Catholic Charities three years ago, and the 25-year-old from Grand Island said she hasn't looked back.

“I really get to see families functioning better, communicating better, and having better relationships,” she said.

Hasselbeck's a social worker for the nonprofit. It's one of the occupations Catholic Charities needs most according to COO Meichle Latham.

There are 15 openings. A majority is for social workers.

While salary is a selling point, Latham said the benefits of the job are equally attractive. They offer generous time off, a 403b retirement plan, and flexible work hours.

“It's more around how to bring people on board who can grow and honor the importance of family,” Latham said. It even includes paid time off to care for a sick parent or child and that's not including your vacation time.

Social workers require at least a bachelor’s degree.

Pay starts at $35,000 a year.
