The Night Ministry is a Chicago-based organization whose mission is to provide human connection, housing support, and health care to members of our community who are unhoused or experiencing poverty.

Every day we offer a lifeline to our most vulnerable neighbors.

We serve everyone without concern for race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

68,000 Chicago residents have no permanent place to call home. Each year, we serve thousands of young people and adults who are unhoused or struggling with poverty.

With an open heart, we compassionately accept each individual as they are and work alongside them to advocate for their immediate physical, emotional, and social needs while affirming our shared humanity.
