Volunteers are the lifeblood of CommunityHealth. As a member of our team, you allow us to provide health care to over 10,500 low-income, uninsured patients a year. We truly could not meet our mission without you, and we thank you so sincerely for your gift of time and talent!

Volunteers are welcome at both of our Chicago locations — West Town (2611 W. Chicago Ave.) and Englewood  (641 W. 63rd St.), and we offer a manageable time commitment with flexible scheduling. Read more about locations, commitment level, and responsibilities below.
