Since opening our doors 33 years ago, Lincoln Park Community Services has changed from a place for people in need of a hot meal and a place to sleep to a comprehensive social service agency with programs that address the challenges of homelessness at every point in the housing continuum. With the support of our many volunteers and community partners, LPCS is able to serve more than 400 individuals each year. Thank you to all of our supporters for helping us empower individuals to make and sustain life changes!
Volunteers are the life line of our organization and we couldn’t serve the nearly 450 individuals a year that we do, without our network of over 2,000 volunteers. There is a volunteer at LPCS in some capacity 24 hours, 7 days a week! There are lots of different ways to get involved with LPCS, so there is an opportunity for everyone.
To get started, please fill out our application form, and attend a volunteer orientation. Upcoming orientation dates are listed below.
