  • Watch the Winners Accept Their Fall Harvest of Hope Community Service Award!

Because the Fall Harvest will be online this year, we thought it would be a great time to surprise this years winners with their award during their interviews. We caught their sincere reaction and we cannot wait to share them with you during this year’s Fall Harvest of Hope (November 8th, 4pm, www.fallharvestofhope).

We honor two community members for their wonderful work, Deacon Mike Dorn and Mayra Hernandez! These amazing individuals brought energy, passion and leadership to every project!

Mayra is a multidisciplinary artist who happens to have been raised in the Back of the Yard neighborhood and is the proud owner of the Back of the Yard Coffeehouse. Her murals and other projects can be found throughout the community. Mayra Hernandez is a Hope House Resident and a Studio Artist at The Port Ministries. 

Deacon Michael Dorn, OFM Cap is a Professed Franciscan Friar of the Province of St. Joseph currently stationed at San Jose Friary while studying at Catholic Theological Union. During his free time, you can find him running around the halls of the Port Ministries bringing our buildings to life with multiple capital campaign projects!

Ms. Mayra and Ms. Larryah did an amazing job beautifying our Love Fridge located in front of the Port Ministries! We are humbled by the partnership with Love Fridge Chicago and see it as a perfect compliment to our Bread Truck Program. In addition to the nine locations that the Bread Truck drives to daily, The Port will stock the fridge with sandwiches and produce for all to grab!

The Love Fridge is a collective that practices mutual aid grounded in food. The fridges allow neighbors to take what they need & leave what they can.
