Get Involved


Our programs are very diverse from one community to the next – and so are the volunteer opportunities. One example of where volunteers are working is in our housing facilities. Volunteers coordinate activities, meals, parties and other services for the disabled, elderly and their families. Individual volunteers, as well as volunteer groups from businesses, faith-based communities, schools and other groups work throughout our programs. Some of our volunteers prefer short-term projects while others work weekly or monthly helping others.

There is another way to "get involved" — through advocacy on behalf of the people who are served in our foster care program. The best way to influence federal, state, or local policy is to contact legislators and other government officials. Volunteers of America of Illinois can help you reach your elected officials, to ask for their support of laws and policies that will help us provide housing, foster care and human services for people who cannot afford to provide those things for themselves.
