The Night Ministry

Over the next few Fridays, Mission Outreach would like to briefly profile some of our mission partners.  This week we chose to feature The Night Ministry.

The Night Ministry provides housing, health care, and human connection to youth and adults in Chicago who are experiencing homelessness or poverty.  Here are just a few of the many ways they serve.

Health Outreach Bus Program.  This specially designed bus features a fully equipped nurse’s office and brings basic medical care and a sense of community to individuals and families six days per week in diverse, under-served areas of Chicago.

The Street Medicine Program brings free health care, survival supplies, and support directly to individuals who have the most difficulty accessing traditional services through regular visits to encampments, expressway viaducts, and street corners across the city.

The Crib provides young adults ages 18 through 24 with safe and supportive overnight emergency shelter, as well as life and leadership development skills.

Early Intervention Services at the Response-Ability Pregnant and Parenting Program (RAPPP) and the Interim Housing Program offer youth ages 14 through 21 and their children, safe and nurturing short-term housing in an environment that fosters stability, responsibility and independent living skills.

How is the Night Ministry able to serve during the Coronavirus pandemic?  Here is a short video that explains how they continue to provide care and support
