  • The Port Ministries is proud to announce our partnership with StoryCatchers Theatre (@storycatchers_theatre). Thursdays we open our doors to host their programming. We are extremely excited to have them here and look forward to having StoryCatchers calling our Family Resource Center their Back of the Yard’s Home.

Storycatchers works with youth in the juvenile justice system to help them confront trauma by telling and sharing their stories through musical theatre.

Storycatchers Theatre prepares young people to make thoughtful life choices through the process of writing, producing, and performing original musical theatre inspired by personal stories. Founded in 1984, the company uses its award-winning creative youth development process to help young people who have become involved in the criminal justice system develop behavioral management, communication and leadership skills, and then to become agents of change as they guide other youth to increase their ability to manage behaviors and become productive citizens. Storycatchers’ five-year vision is to establish a statewide artistic platform that engages the public in the stories of incarcerated and re-entering youth, with the goal of inspiring the community to embrace and receive these adolescents and emerging adults as they navigate detention, incarceration, and reentry.

  • A sneak peek the artist at work. Ms. Mayra and Ms. Larryah are beautifying the Love Fridge that will be 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, we will be able to stock this fridge with sandwiches and produce for anyone interested.

Hopefully, we will get this fridge open to the public in the next week. To learn more about the Love Fridge and their wonderful mission, follow the, at @thelovefridgechicago

  • BE PART OF THE CHANGE: ChangeFest 2020!

The Port Ministries is humbled to partner with Social Change (@chisocialchange) for ChangeFest 2020.

ChangeFest is the short-form name for the International Social Change Film Festival and it is an international celebration of our common humanity through film, music, art & fashion.

Hopefully next year, The Port Ministries will be a participant as we work with One For One (@oneforonechicago), ABJ Community Services (@a.b.j.community.services), Firehouse Community Arts Center (@_thefirehouse_), and many more to present a project called THE BLUEPRINT. This project is a partnership between organizations in multiple neighborhoods as we do our part to work with individuals impacted by violence and making sure their stories are documented and told!
