There are many ways to volunteer, from a couple hours one time, to regular commitments of service to our community’s most vulnerable population.
Outreach volunteers help us serve our homeless basic needed items both on the street in Kankakee and at local hotels where our "hidden homeless" are living. For summer 2021 we will have outreach teams on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Anyone 12 or older is welcome to join as long as you sign up in advance. Directions for meeting the team are listed on the sign up page.
Beginning May 6, 2021, donations will be accepted at 240 S. Dearborn, Kankakee between 5-7:30pm Thursdays and 11am-1pm Saturdays. We need 1-2 volunteers during these times to assist. If interested, you can sign up using the link below! We do appreciate volunteers willing to work regularly.
