Volunteer

The Chicago Help Initiative (CHI) offers individuals the opportunity to volunteer their time and talent in several ways. We are always seeking dynamic volunteers who can assist us with our Wednesday meals, the literacy program, fundraising events and other programs. With the dedication of one or two hours each week, together we can begin to change lives! Equally rewarding, volunteering can make a difference in your life as well.  You can download the information packet to learn about the various ways you can help.

The benefits include:

  • Positively impacting Chicago’s homeless and disadvantaged population
  • Becoming a resource
  • Developing relationships with our board members and guests
  • Helping to provide assistance in the execution of meals and events for our guests
