Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened,
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.

SUNDAY POTLUCK SCHEDULE
A drop-in Day Center for Timothy's Ministry
Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. - 11 a.m.
Since the onset of Covid-19 in March 2020, we have changed the way we provide meals in order to stay safe. We purchase 60 - 70 meals delivered hot from a local restaurant which typically includes 2 pieces of fried chicken, 2 large pieces of pizza, 1 container of mostacolli, all packed in individual bags complete with napkins and utensils for a total cost of $280. We have had some weeks when someone has donated and packaged the food. If you would like to help us to provide food, a financial donation would be very much appreciated. Please contact me If your group would like to help us serve or bring trays of food to our kitchen in Chicago, and we can talk about creative and safe ways to assemble the food into individual containers and bags.
Thank you for caring for our friends during this very challenging time. So thankful to God that He has provided everything we need. God bless you!
Location: Mount Olive Church, 3850 North Tripp Avenue, Chicago IL 60641
Tim's House Hours:
Purpose: To provide a safe, loving, and encouraging place for people struggling with homelessness to gather and experience the love of God through community. There is prayer, conversation, sharing, Bible Study, delicious food, and support with housing, shelters, I.D.s, medical/mental/dental health referrals, and the many other challenges that homelessness brings.
I often refer to Tim's House as "God's heartbeat" because there is such love in this place. People love coming together and always say there is no place like Tim's House and I know this is because of the presence and love of God in our midst! Everyone helps each other at Tim's House and we have become a family where newcomers are always welcome and embraced!
