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 our shelter site during the winter. You can meet at 396 N. Kennedy (back door) at 6:15pm or just meet us at our shelter site (800 Cardinal Dr.) at 7:15pm to serve our shelter guests. 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.
Our store in Bradley, IL allows us to fund our programs for the homeless.
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.
