Community Partners

2023-2024 IVC Chicago Partner Agencies

This year, our IVC Chicago Service Corps Members are serving in 49 sites, including schools, homeless shelters, pantries, ESL programs for refugees, social service agencies, residences for adults with intellectual disabilities, ministries for individuals who are incarcerated or re-entering society, and online education for refugees around the world.


Our Ignatian Volunteer Corps volunteer Ruth offers a quiet strength and the gift of hope to clients, boosting their self-esteem and enabling them to make informed decisions about their lives.  The staff was blessed to witness her selflessness and compassion as she sat alongside a client with no family as he was dying, to ensure that he did no pass alone.
