Volunteer Forms

By simply sharing a story, singing a song, or lending an ear, you can change a life. When you bring joy and comfort into someone’s heart, you experience the power of volunteering. Chicago Methodist Senior Services recruits and trains volunteers who are committed to supporting, improving, and enhancing the lives of older adults. When you volunteer with us, you help make residents’ days better.

Even if you don’t have much time to share, we’ll work to find volunteer opportunities that fit your interests and schedule. From computer class instruction, planning movie nights, and leading history discussions to supporting our art therapy, pet therapy and music programming, we offer many flexible options for getting involved.

Please note that a drug screening and background check are required for all ongoing individual volunteers.
