Mission Statement

Open Arms Ministry supports and partners with those struggling with homelessness, poverty, and food insecurity to enhance human dignity, community, and opportunity.

Description

Open Arms Ministry has two programs addressing homelessness, poverty, and food insecurity on the northwest side of Chicago.

DROP-IN

Open Arms Drop-In provides basic relief services to individuals struggling with homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless. More than relief from the weather outside, this drop-in program enables those who come to share a meal with friends and get connected to resources.

Guests also receive help meeting physical needs like clothing, toiletries, and basic healthcare. Referrals are available for services such as overnight shelter, recovery, and education.

FOOD PANTRY

Working in conjunction with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, the Open Arms Food Pantry serves families and individuals who live in the area bounded by Irving Park, Fullerton, Pulaski, and Western.

All are welcome (proof of address required), including those who have experienced job loss, illness in the family, unexpected expenses, and more.
