Normal Moments relies heavily on key referrers to help families learn about our services, including social worker and child life specialists from all the Chicago area hospitals with pediatric specialty units as well as members of palliative care teams and rehab centers.
Of course, our continued existence relies directly on our enthusiastic volunteers who step forward to fulfill the various needs of our families and our organization, sometimes on a weekly basis and sometimes only once a year, but every program’s success is dependent on the volunteers who share their time, talents, and treasures with us! Our volunteers come from diverse walks of life and span an age range from 18 – 80. They live in the heart of downtown and in the farmlands of Illinois. They are wealthy and they are stretching to pay their own bills. What they all have in common, however, is a deep sense of compassion and a belief in doing what they are able to help others in distress. All volunteers agree to a fingerprinted background check and attend a personal screening & training session with a Normal Moments representative.
