Please read the FAQs to better understand what may be needed in the COVID-19 response.


By registering with Illinois Helps, an Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP), you can be part of an alert system and respond if available, when activated, to a significant disaster or public health emergency. As a volunteer, you pick the organizations to work with in the system when you register and those organizations will utilize you when your help is needed! Your professional credentials will be verified and this information will become part of the statewide secure database.
