Volunteer with Marillac St. Vincent Family Services

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with MSV! With the adaptations we have all needed to make due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our volunteer opportunities have changed and continue to evolve based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as state and local public health and licensing agencies. Please check back here to see when opportunities have been updated. If you wish to apply for a current opportunity, or be added to our mailing list so you can receive our monthly newsletter with updates about MSV and volunteer opportunities, please fill out the application form below. NOTE: Several opportunities require a basic background check; and ALL volunteer opportunities working with children require a criminal background check in accordance with DCFS policies.
