Chicago Cares connects people, communities and causes through volunteerism. As the city’s leading nonprofit service organization, Chicago Cares has engaged more than 500,000 volunteers through 250 monthly programs, corporate programming and annual events. It is the only nonprofit that addresses needs across the full spectrum — from hunger to education to job readiness — by nimbly creating impactful, hands-on programming benefiting hundreds of community nonprofits. In the process, Chicago Cares empowers people to lead and transforms the city for good by offering a platform for collaboration, civic engagement and long-term change. Volunteers can get involved with us any day of the year through our volunteer opportunity calendar. Stay connected with us by ‘liking’ us on Facebook, and following us on Twitter and Instagram.
