The Night Ministry
November 28, 2011

Have Volunteered in many different ways. The Night Ministry (TNM) delivers an open ear and hand to those who are in dire need in Chicagoland.

is reliably present with people, places and times. Better than any I have seen for homeless in Chicago. TNM helps people at the most basic of levels. "Successful clients" have told me TNM referrals helped them change their own lives.
