The Night Ministry serves….
the 138,575 Chicagoans who experienced homelessness last year.
the 12,186 young people, ages 14-21, who were homeless and trying to survive on their own in Chicago, without the support of family or a guardian.
the 1.3 million uninsured or underinsured people living in the Chicago area.
The Night Ministry is a Chicago-based organization that works to provide housing, health care and human connection to members of our community struggling with poverty or homelessness. With an open heart and an open mind, we accept people as they are and work to address their immediate physical, emotional and social needs while affirming their sense of humanity.
Through The Night Ministry's Health Outreach Bus, Youth Outreach Van and Youth Shelter Network, we work on the ground in Chicago neighborhoods to reach adults, teens, pregnant and new moms who have nowhere else to go.
