Inner City Impact has served the inner city of Chicago since 1972. Committed staff reach kids ages 5 – 18 in some of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods — Humboldt Park, Logan Square, and Cicero. Through ICI’s core programs, dedicated full-time missionaries and volunteers work with children in Bible studies, one-on-one discipleship, and in a variety of Christ-centered, wholesome and fun activities. Programs include after school clubs, summer and winter camp adventures, and leadership development and sports leagues engage the kids in wholesome activities – and give us the opportunity to share the gospel.
