Shepherd’s HOPE mission is:
“To recognize and meet the needs of our neighbors, pledging to help individuals to become compassionate contributors to family, community and society; we vow to do this one life at a time.

If you are in need of some assistance then this page is for you. So how may we help you?

If you need food for yourself and your family, come to the Shepherd’s HOPE Food Pantry at 838 W. Marquette Rd. We are open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. All in need are welcome regardless of age, gender, race, or creed.

When you arrive, you can expect a friendly greeting and that you will be treated respectfully. We will ask you to register and provide a photo ID and some information about how many reside in your household and need food. You will be given bags which you can fill by selecting the groceries that you need.  You will be able to receive this food twice each month.

If you need someone to talk with you and listen to your story and the struggles you are having, we have staff available for that. You can ask to speak to someone when you visit or you can use the contact us page to send us an e-mail or phone the pantry (773-756-3535). We will do our best to help you find the resources you need to improve your situation.

If you are looking for spiritual community, we  have a Bible Study that meets every Saturday morning at THE CENTER of Englewood, 838 W. Marquette. from 10:30 am until 12:30 pm.

If you have a need to sit and enjoy a delicious, healthy hot meal while meeting others from your neighborhood, come to the Family Feeding Center.  The Family Feeding Center will be serving meals every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11:30 am until 2:00 pm. Once again you will find plenty of opportunity for community and conversation. Shepherd’s HOPE partners with nine other ministries to provide this service.

If you are in need of clothing or other items, we have an occasional free “store” day where you may find what you need among the donated goods available.

Finally, if you feel the need “to pay it forward” and give back to your community, you can join our team of volunteers and serve at the pantry, the Family Feeding Center, or help with our aquaponic farm. If you are interested, just use the Contact Us page to let us know and a staff member will get back to you.
