Timothy's Ministry, We Are Family

Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28

 

BACKGROUND
(By Marian Alvarado)

Timothy's Ministry first began in December 2002 as God's answer to my prayer after I cried out to God on my knees the day before my son Tim's birthday (Tim passed away the year before). I remember saying, "Help me, God, if only I could have had the simple joy of baking Tim a cake, what I would have given." Click on "Stories" in the top navigation bar to read how it all began.

LOVING AND HELPING PEOPLE STRUGGLING WITH HOMELESSNESS THROUGH THE COMPASSION AND LOVE OF CHRIST SINCE 2004

During the COVID-19 crisis, our friends have a greater need for food and financial assistance and encouragement, and I thank God we have been able to continue to provide for all of our Timothy's Ministry friends safely at our Tim's House Parking Lot in Chicago each week. The chairs, placed 6-10 feet apart so that no one stands in line, allows people to rest for a little while while enjoying an individually packed hot meal, take-home grocery bags, face masks, hand sanitizers, bus passes conversation and prayer. We are purchasing most everything and providing some rent assistance. Thank you to those who have donated to help us to meet the needs of those who are the most vulnerable in our City. I have never seen people experience this level of fear around hunger and homelessness, and we are serving 60 - 70 people each week.

THANKING GOD FOR 16 YEARS OF TIMOTHY'S MINISTRY!!

Timothy's Ministry Movie

Since February 2004 Timothy's Ministry has been dedicated to reaching out with love and compassion to people struggling with homelessness. We gather together for biweekly potluck luncheons as a family in Arlington Heights where caring volunteers who come from many different Churches and faith backgrounds join together with our guests to offer friendship, food, clothing, Bible studies, and more. We also gather every Thursday and Friday at Tim's House in Chicago. We thank God for orchestrating this ministry and for bringing us together as one family in His love.

FINANCIAL DONATIONS CAN GIVE OUR FRIENDS THE POSSIBILITY OF STEPPING OUT OF HOMELESSNESS, RELIEVE SUFFERING, AND IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE.

To make a donation to Timothy's Ministry so that we can continue to help people by providing a warm place to gather, meals, short-term housing expenses, transportation, medical needs, and more...please click here.
