Volunteers of America Illinois
Real Estate Program

Donating real estate to VOA Illinois is a great way to support our mission to correct life’s greatest inequities by ensuring everyone has a place to call home and the support they need to thrive.

We have supported and empowered Illinois' most vulnerable groups, including veterans, foster children, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities. Our work touches the mind, body, heart — and ultimately the spirit — of those we serve, integrating our deep compassion with highly effective programs and services.

About Real Estate Donations

Volunteers of America Illinois partners with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to process real estate donations to benefit Volunteers of America Illinois Our program takes any property type (land, homes, commercial) in any location so long as there is equity. Even if you owe back taxes, have a mortgage balance, or deferred maintenance, it's no problem. We will pay off all loans, liens, commissions owed and pay all closing costs. If you have a real estate asset that is costing you money or not being utilized, donating it is a great way to give back and you may even claim a significant tax deduction!
