Mission Statement

The Night Ministry compassionately provides housing, health care, outreach, spiritual care, and social services to adults and youth who struggle with homelessness, poverty and loneliness. We accept individuals as they are and offer support as they seek to improve their lives. We invite others to join this hope-filled work.

Description

OUTREACH & HEALTH MINISTRY: Six nights each week, The Night Ministry operates a customized bus that visits 6 Chicago neighborhoods, 3 times a week. Staff, including a registered nurse, outreach professionals, a HIV Tester and trained volunteers, provide basic health care and health education, screenings, counseling, referrals and hospitality to thousands of persons on the nighttime streets.
