What Does The Night Ministry Do?

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, each year we provide services to 5,200 adults, teens, pregnant and new moms who have nowhere else to go.
