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.

Every day we offer a lifeline to forgotten members of our community.

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

Through The Night Ministry's Health Outreach Bus, Street Medicine Team, Youth Housing, and Youth Outreach Van, each year we provide services to more than 5,600 young people and adults who have nowhere else to go.

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.
