Religious Volunteer ProgramsSheriff Thomas J. Dart created the Religious Volunteer Programs to enlist volunteer clergy and members from faith based organizations to provide spiritual, educational and mentoring programs that assist in reducing the population and recidivism rate at the Cook County Department of Corrections.

Religious volunteer programs must be pre-approved. Volunteers must apply and be periodically certified.  Once approved, religious volunteers are allowed to visit the Department of Corrections detainees, Boot Camp participants and those in other Sheriff’s programs.

Religious volunteers at Cook County Jail can provide programs in the areas of worship, religious education, special events, chaplain counseling, and death notification/wake orders. They may also bring approved care packages.
