Mission Statement

We provide opportunities for children and adults in Chicago's underserved neighborhoods to excel academically, grow spiritually, expand life experiences and become effective leaders.

Description

Located in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago, Holy Family Ministries is a not-for-profit organization operating four programs for at-risk youth:
