The Night Ministry operates on the ground in Chicago neighborhoods to build relationships and provide immediate, practical resources. Our Health Outreach Bus offers medical exams, treatment and HIV testing, as well as coffee, conversation and a sense of community. The Youth Outreach team reaches out to homeless and LGBT youth in Lakeview to offer non-judgmental support, guidance, food and self-care supplies.
Outreach is the first step in relationship-building. We listen closely to
each person’s story. We provide practical resources. We are patient and
consistent. We hope the relationships we build over time will empower each
person to consider options based on his or her own strengths.
