Chicago Summit of Hope
The Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) has asked Prison Fellowship volunteers to help/assist with the upcoming Chicago Summit of Hope event. The Summit of Hope is a community expo that will bring reentry support organizations together under the same roof - for one day- to provide needed services and resources to ex-offenders.

We are trying to provide (20) volunteers to help serve many ex-prisoners from the west-side.
