Offer Hope, Restore Dignity and Transform Lives

Ways to get involved

We know each person has their own way of giving, so we leave it up to you to decide how you want to get involved with us! And believe us, there are lots of ways to help.

  • Events

    Join us! Come see our mission in action at one of our signature events or lend a hand at our back to school and holiday drives. Learn more about events happening all year round.

  • Cheer Mail

    You can help spread cheer to our senior residents by sending an uplifting note, artwork, photos, or short video! We will share these in our community either by reading aloud, printing, or showing them on a mobile device. Your sincere, thoughtful letters & fun pictures will surely brighten someone’s day!

  • Volunteer Opportunities

    Giving back comes in all shapes and sizes - whether you’re an individual, a small group, or a company, here you’ll find ideas of how you can join our mission to offer hope, restore dignity, and transform lives.

  • Messages of Hope

    Connect with the individuals and families that call VOA Illinois home by sending a message that will be distributed by our staff to the Veterans, families, seniors, and adults with disabilities we serve.

  • Hope Manor Sponsorships
