Our Mission

We work to empower the homeless in urban Chicago by engaging with the homeless where they live, providing necessary services, and creating a sense of community support without judgement or prerequisite.

What we provide

Necessities of Life

Food, water and clothing


Feeling of fellowship or friendship

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

1 John 3:17-18
