We believe in the power of volunteering to transform Chicago. Volunteer with us.
At Chicago Cares, we envision a Chicago where we’re all rooting for each other. A city where we celebrate the qualities and heritage that make each neighborhood unique, while recognizing that more unites us than divides us.
We dream of a Chicago where we’re all active participants, fully invested in the city we call home and the success of all of our neighbors. A place where we realize that none of us exists in a vacuum, and the strength of the city as a whole depends on the strength of each neighborhood.
Our hundreds of monthly group volunteer projects impact immediate needs. And through the power of the volunteer experience, we set our city on a path to long-term change.
In the process, we create programming from the ground up for more than 200 schools, parks, and nonprofits. That means positive, long-term change for the city we love. Ready to join us?
