Impacting Kids’ Lives for Eternity

Who we are: Inner City Impact

Inner City Impact (ICI) exists to serve the children from Chicago’s inner city and to bring them hope. We are a non-profit organization that operates through generous donors and committed volunteers, who have deep compassion and love for Chicago’s inner city children, and who desire to see the kids impacted by the good news of Jesus Christ. In order to reach as many kids as possible, we are located in two different neighborhoods: Logan Square and Cicero.

What we do: After School Programs

We open our doors for after school programs from Tuesdays through Fridays for kids and teenagers between 5-18 years. Our staff embraces the given time with the kids as they give them their full attention while playing, doing crafts and hanging out with them. Every Friday we intentionally set time apart to share with the kids the good news of the gospel in form of interactive Bible studies.

What we desire: To See Chicago’s Inner City Kids Impacted

It is our desire to make the kids feel welcomed and to provide a safe space for them. We hope that ICI is a place in which the kids feel loved and are given the opportunity to be honest, to heal and to grow.


“It is our desire to make a difference in these kids’ lives, to bring children hope by offering them a safe place, and to share with them the good news of Jesus Christ. “
