 From our volunteers…

“I feel truly blessed to be associated with IVC. The experience of tutoring young immigrants, along with the support of IVC colleagues, has enabled me to grow spiritually in my own life.” –John

“IVC has given me the opportunity and challenge of living my faith and deepening my spirituality.  It has helped me to have a sense of purpose in my retirement.” –Joan

Volunteering with IVC has helped my faith grow immeasurably, through my service, through our monthly meetings and reflections. My placement is with a religious outreach for people with mental illness on Chicago’s west side. This work is an opportunity to be companions in faith with these men and women. Our monthly IVC gatherings give me a chance with others who are also doing God’s work. All good! –Don

“For me, IVC is a way to give back and to see God in everything” –Jorge

“I have been in IVC for 8 years. Previously, I tried two other volunteer programs but wasn’t able to sustain my volunteer commitment because there was no support. The IVC monthly meetings and reflection program have made all the difference…” –Mary

“IVC is the ultimate combination of giving and receiving. It’s this balance that makes it so appealing.” —Mike

“Through IVC I am evangelized by those I am called to serve.” –Camille
