Getting Involved

"The ability to provide an environment that is healing both physically and emotionally is a priceless gift to these children and their families."--Heather, a volunteer

Volunteers at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital play a vital role in the care of our patients and families. By reading a story to a child, working on an art project with a teenager, or rocking an infant to sleep, volunteers brighten patients' spirits and help to reduce the anxiety surrounding a hospital visit.

To qualify, volunteers must:

  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Make a time commitment: At least four hours a week for six months or 100 hours minimum
