Saint Franciscan Outreach - Volunteering
"We, Franciscan Outreach Association, strive to provide for basic human needs such as food, shelter, encouragement, and assistance in creating a better life for people who are homeless and marginalized, especially those who are underserved. We pledge to walk with them by being vulnerable, by advocating for them, and by being reliable. We wish to provide an open, respectful, welcoming, secure environment, and to affirm the dignity of our guests. We are looking for the transformation of ourselves and our society."

Volunteers will help with serving meals at the soup kitchen. There are two locations and dates will be announced as they are made available.

Option 1 - Marquard Center
1645 W. LeMoyne St., Chicago, IL, 60622

Option 2 - Franciscan House
2715 W. Harrison St., Chicago, IL, 60612

Time: 4:30-7:00pm (Marquard) // 6:15-8:15pm (Franciscan)

Both venues are accessible via CTA. Use Uber or Lyft if necessary (much faster).

Please select the specific date/location. Dates will be announced for the current month. It is best that you schedule one week ahead in case you need to cancel and to ensure availability of the shift.

Volunteers in the past have indicated that the Marquard Center has provided more convenient time slots and a safer environment for volunteering, so more signups will be made available for that location.

Note, there is a sign-in sheet that you must fill out when you volunteer at the soup kitchen. Because there have been previous issues with sign-ups, just write in your name and the group you are volunteering with (UIC SFP).

If you have any questions/concerns, please contact Alexander Kravets at akrave3@uic.edu
