Join us in making a difference in the lives of migrants by volunteering with ICDI – Illinois Community for Displaced Immigrants. We have several opportunities to support migrants on their journeys towards a better future. 

Welcoming Team at the Greyhound Station:

Welcome migrants and asylum seekers arriving at the Greyhound station. In this role, volunteers warmly greet migrants and distribute essential items such as food, water, and clothing. Volunteers also offer assistance with navigating transportation and guide migrants to necessary information and resources. 

Essentials Team at our Warehouses: 

Volunteers can assist with sorting and organizing donated items in our inventory at our Elmhurst or downtown Chicago operations. Your efforts will ensure that donations are efficiently distributed to those in need, directly impacting the lives of migrants.

Why Volunteer with Us:

  • Make a tangible difference in the lives of migrants and asylum seekers by offering essential support and guidance.
  • Join a compassionate community dedicated to serving those in need with dignity and respect. 
  • Gain valuable experience in humanitarian work and cross-cultural communication.
  • Various scheduling options to accommodate your availability.
