Make a Difference: Volunteer at Chicago Hearing Society

Chicago Hearing Society is one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the Chicago area serving People with Disabilities, People With Behavioral Health Needs, People who are Deaf/DeafBlind/Hard of Hearing. Each year, we serve more than 8,000 people through our programs throughout the Chicago area. Without the dedication, enthusiasm and compassion of our volunteers, Chicago Hearing Society simply could not help as many people. Our volunteers represent all ages and come from all cultures and backgrounds. Some volunteer for a specific project; others give several hours a week or a month. No matter what they do or how much time they donate, all help to support people to live their best life.
