Volunteers are a vital resource for Southside Center of Hope.

Since our founding, volunteers have been critical to our mission to end addiction and homelessness among women in the Chicagoland area.

As a volunteer at Southside Center of Hope, you help make a difference in the lives of women in recovery and their children. You also gain the chance to learn more about the issues surrounding substance abuse and homelessness.

Our current individual and group volunteer opportunities include:


Assist Southside Center of Hope staff as they support homeless women in recovery.


Help us prepare and serve dinner to our residents on Fridays and Saturdays.


Host a workshop of your choice for the women at Southside Center of Hope.

Donation Drives

Organize and participate in the bulk collection of needed items for the women and children residing with us.
