ABOUT THE NIGHT MINISTRY
With open hearts and minds, we provide housing, healthcare, spiritual care, social services, and human connection to members of the Chicago community who are struggling with poverty and homelessness. We accept people as they are and work to address their immediate physical, emotional, and social needs while affirming their sense of humanity. We were founded when a coalition of diverse North Side congregations hired Rev. Tom Behrens to reach out to people where they gathered at night due to isolation, despair, and homelessness. From those humble beginnings over 40 years ago when Tom's first office was the trunk of his car, we have grown to a financially sound nonprofit that provides numerous award-winning services to the most vulnerable in our community.
Although not all employees are involved in direct services, everyone is dedicated to the mission of The Night Ministry, believes in its core values, and knows that their work is highly valued. We strive to be the best employer possible, providing our employees with a mission-driven work atmosphere that is both focused and fun as well as a benefits package that we feel is one of the best in the industry.
