Small groups, couples, families with or without children. Commitment: 1-2x/wk (2 hr minimum), 4 months. Locations: Rogers Park, West Ridge, Albany Park, Evanston. Occasional possibilities for others, such as south and west sides. Find more information on Good Neighbor Teams HERE
Medical Appointment Transporter
Are you looking for a practical way to serve the refugee community in Chicago? Many of our clients need rides to medical appointments on a weekly or monthly basis. This opportunity requires occasional daytime weekday availability and can be done as your schedule allows- as much as multiple times a week or as little as once a month. Drive your own vehicle or a World Relief Van. Application, Info Session, Background Check, and Interview are all required.
Are you willing to be contacted about last minute tasks? Refugee resettlement work is often unpredictable! We have a list of approved volunteers we email for help with things like airport pickups, moving help, or providing a hot meal for an arriving family. Application, Info Session, Background Check, and Interview are all required.

Other ways you can make an impact in the lives of refugees.
- Advocate for refugees now. Far too often, the voices of the poor and oppressed have been marginalized or silenced. These communities need advocates to speak on their behalf. You can be that advocate today.
- Pray for the vulnerable. One of the most impactful ways you can stand with us is through prayer. We believe God truly hears our prayers and works to bring hope and healing.
