At this time, our shelter partners cannot accept “walk-up” volunteers due to security and safety concerns for minors and vulnerable populations on-site. If you would like to volunteer with partner organizations providing resources to new arrivals, visit their webpages below for opportunities.

  • Volunteer at New Life Center's Warehouse. Sign up here.
  • Volunteer at Cradles 2 Crayon's Giving Factory. Sign up here.


The Resurrection Project, in partnership with the State of Illinois, City of Chicago, and a number of law firms and nonprofit organizations, are coordinating immigration application workshops for new arrivals


If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up here for an upcoming workshop shift.
