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 can plan to spend about an hour with us, loading up, outreach, and restocking. Teams meet at a Kankakee location at 6:30pm every Thursday. Dress warm in cold weather! 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. Groups of more than five MUST get pre-approval (email Dawn below).
Our consignment store in Bradley, IL allows us to fund our programs for the homeless and to create job training opportunities for those we serve.
We are always looking for volunteers willing to be trained to work some regular hours each week or month. We can also use some irregular volunteers at times to help with some projects.
If interested, please call the store at (815) 304-5295.
