Volunteer Application

Each year, The Cradle relies on more than 400 volunteers to assist us in our work of creating families through adoption. Our dedicated volunteers provide a wide range of support for The Cradle including: volunteering for events, speaking at training sessions for Cradle families, and much more. 

Please complete the form below to indicate your interest in various volunteer opportunities at The Cradle. We are so fortunate to have many people interested in volunteering with The Cradle. As The Cradle is located in the Chicago area, our volunteer needs are typically local to Chicago. Please anticipate that we will contact you when we have a need that matches your interest.

Note: we are not accepting applications for Cuddlers at this time. Check back soon!
