Ways to Get Involved

We’ve Moved Locations!

We are now hosting programs at 1543 W Howard St, Chicago, IL. We have rented this space to expand our space and serve the needs of more than 50 After-school Students, including a newly added High School program! We are always in need of tutors, cooks, and volunteers. Come join us!

Bringing Our Rogers Park Community Back into the Light

From its humble beginnings as a Bible study, our mission at C24/7 Father’s Arms Ministries has remained the same: providing safe spaces for young people to thrive economically, socially, and spiritually.

After almost a decade of creating after-school programs, job development training, community outreach in the North of Howard community, C24/7 shows no signs of stopping. To catch a glimpse of our vision, watch Ulonda’s video.

Our Mission

C24/7 is a non-profit organization dedicated, through the power of Jesus Christ, to improving the lives of children and young adults in the North of Howard neighborhood by providing the necessary tools, security and environment for them to thrive economically, socially and spiritually.

Ways to Get Involved

Providing a safe and healthy environment for high-risk students to learn and grow spiritually, physically, educationally, and emotionally.

Job Development ‣

Community Outreach ‣

After-School Program

C24/7’s After-school Program provides opportunities for elementary and high school students, often forgotten or ignored by other local programs, helping them learn, grow, and thrive in and out of the classroom.

We build relationships with students and their families, serve their immediate needs in the form of food, childcare, clothes, and supplies, then walk with them on their way to becoming empowered individuals.

Learn about our after-school program

“The program has helped me a lot with math and reading. The volunteers and Bob help me a lot. The neighborhood we live is not that safe but when I come to program I feel safe and happy, and I feel excited.”

Shaniya, 3rd Grade

Job Development

C24/7’s Job Development Program, Dreams, Visions, Work, provides spiritual support and job training in order to connect men and women to work that taps into their unique skills and purpose.

We do this through building relationships with local businesses, teaching a proven curriculum, and walking each step of the way with our students.

Community Outreach

Because we live and spend so much time in the community, we are always aware of the needs of our neighbors.

Most services and programs in our community don’t get to know the individuals they’re serving, and fewer put in the time to build valuable relationships. We believe that strong relationships lead to strong change.

“Being in this women’s Bible Study has been the first time I have been comfortable in a group full of women — ever. It’s a very honest and caring group. They help me know I’m not alone and I’m cared for. I feel like it’s my family.”

Michelle, Facility Manager/Front Desk Administrator
