“When I was going through a hard time, The Night Ministry helped me build a support system that I’ve never actually had before.”


More than 86,000 Chicagoans experience homelessness a year.

The Night Ministry is a Chicago-based nonprofit that provides housing, health care, and human connection to young people and adults struggling with homelessness or poverty.

  • More than 6,000 people turn to us every year when they have nowhere else to go.
  • People like Lukas, who found a sense of community when he stayed at The Crib, our overnight shelter for young adults.
  • Young adults can find a safe, supportive place to stay and the resources they need to achieve stability through our Youth Housing Programs.
  • We bring free health care, food, clothing, and supplies directly to individuals and families through our Health Outreach Bus and Street Medicine Programs.
