Welcome to IVC Chicago

IVC Chicago began in September 2001 with twelve individuals – known as Service Corps Members – whose prior occupations ranged from fire chief and postal worker to business executive and nurse. They volunteered as hospital and prison chaplains, teachers’ aides, and GED instructors at nine service agencies.

In 2023 – 24, there are 75 IVC Service Corps Members serving (in-person and virtually) at 49 service sites. Service Corps Members in Chicago are working with youth and young adults in education and mentoring programs, refugee and immigrant services, women’s and children’s services and hospital and prison ministry. They provide healthcare and food assistance and work in hunger and homeless services. They serve the elderly and disabled.

The IVC Chicago Leadership Team describes a typical Service Corps Member as someone who is “committed to serving others and to reflecting on God’s presence and power in their volunteer service and in all aspects of their life.”
