Breakthrough Urban Ministries began in 1992 as a response to the needs of homeless street people. Over the past 15 years, we have provided supportive services to more than 10,000 people in Chicago seeking safety from the effects of poverty, homelessness and addiction. From a simple beginning as a drop-in center and then as an emergency shelter meeting basic survival needs, we grew quickly adding services to address needs for health care, substance abuse counseling and job preparation.With the development of a wider array of programs serving the homeless, we came to realize the need to intervene earlier in the lives of people before bad habits and bad choices could lead to life-damaging consequences. The expansion of our youth outreach effort in East Garfield Park was a pivotal development in the history of the agency that ultimately connected us to neighborhood families and made us aware of the wider range of their needs.
