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.
Founded in 2016, C24/7: Father’s Arms Ministries was created by Natalie and James Crockett. James grew up on the South Side of Chicago, and from an early age missed having a central father figure in his life. He spent his formative years in and out of gang activity and prison, only to end up accepting the overwhelming power of God’s father-like love at the age of 19. Ever since, he has been passionate about living out the love of God and acting as a father figure to a neighborhood desperately in need of one. Our organization was born out of this passion. Through the hard work of our staff and volunteers, we were awarded 501(c)(3) status as of April 14, 2017.
Since our inception, we have reached, served, and empowered our shared community through an After-school Program, Job Development Training, and Community Outreach. We have started new programs, grown our programs, and extended our reach to thousands of people in the past decade. We have sought to meet our community in their need, walking with them through the terrible, but real trials of violence, poverty, and lack of opportunity.
