Urban Youth Mission: Chicago
Urban Youth Mission participants will have the opportunity to work with organizations like the following:
A Just Harvest’s mission is to fight poverty and hunger in the Rogers Park and greater Chicago community by providing nutritious meals daily while cultivating community and economic development and organizing across racial, cultural, and socioeconomic lines in order to create a more just society.
The Chicago Lights Elam Davies Social Service Center at Fourth Presbyterian Church meets basic human needs while working with partner agencies to support persons on their journey toward greater stability and self-sufficiency.
The Boulevard’s mission is to provide a healing environment and resources to help ill and injured homeless adults restore their health, rebuild their lives, and regain self sufficiency.
Inspiration Corporation, in an atmosphere of dignity and respect,helps people who are affected by homelessness and poverty to improve their lives and increase self-sufficiency through the provision of social services, employment training and placement, and housing.
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. With an open heart and an open mind, Night Ministry accepts people as they are and works to address their immediate physical, emotional, and social needs while affirming their sense of humanity.
And many others…
