Care For Friends Foot Clinic

Foot Clinic is a service offered on the third Saturday and last Monday of every month from 10am-12pm. People experiencing homelessness are on their feet the majority of the time and resolving painful issues is important to them. We are specifically looking for volunteers who are comfortable with touching feet.

The volunteer clinic is coordinated by a podiatrist and two nurses. Other volunteers work under their direction. Guests are encouraged to care for their own feet with the foot baths and tools we provide. They are assisted as the need arises or problems are identified.

Volunteers are involved in keeping clean basins filled with warm water, and emptying and cleaning basins that have been used. Socialization with the guests contributes to the pleasant atmosphere in the clinic.

This is a great opportunity to work with people in Chicago, that really need your support and time. Whether you have experience working in this industry, or are just keen to volunteer, we are keen to hear from you.

If you're interested in this opportunity to volunteer please contact Volunteer Coordinator Bessana Kendig at cffvco@gmail.com or call 720-545-4970

Mission Statement

Care for Friends provides easy access to community, food and overall wellness for Chicago’s most vulnerable and under-served people, in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Through its programs, Care for Friends successfully connects people with community resources to enable them to achieve a better quality of life.

Description

Our flagship program is "Food for Friends" - where we create a safe space for anyone requiring a meal to gather in community for a no-cost hot lunch served in sit-down, family style with dignity and respect.

Other services are available during this gathering time, including haircuts, a health clinic, clothes closet, and toiletries distribution. Additionally, representatives from our various partner organizations begin to make connections with our guests - establishing trusting relationships that will ultimately allow our guests to connect with the services they need to achieve a better quality of life.
