Hands On Suburban Chicago
The Volunteer Center of Northwest Suburban Chicago (TVC) was founded in 1969 with a mission to “improve lives by developing, advancing, and promoting community volunteer initiatives”. TVC primarily recruits and places volunteers with nonprofits in need of help and trains nonprofit staff in volunteer and nonprofit management. This provides over 150 local nonprofits with critical capacity building support for strengthening and sustaining their programs. TVC’s service area includes 53 towns and villages in the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago, reaching a population of over 1.6 million.
