2022 Fall Harvest of Hope
Join us for this year's Fall Harvest of Hope, the Port Ministries' annual celebration and fundraiser on October 23rd!
This year’s event will be an In-Person Event at 115 Bourbon Street! Guests may join us for food, music, activities, celebrate the work and fundraise to ensure our programs and services continue to stay free for anyone who may require our help.
The Port Ministries is a Franciscan inspired organization that provides the fundamental needs of the mind, body, and spirit. We do this by offering eight free programs and services that holistically work together to serve the under-resourced and under-served residents of our south side Chicago communities.
The Fall Harvest of Hope is The Port's only annual fundraiser and raises 33% of our general operating budget. It is only because of donations from caring individuals like yourself that we are able to help others.
Please consider attending, making a donation, participating in our online auction, buying raffle tickets, donating wish list items, or sponsoring our event.
Support the Port and Help Us Help Others!

About The Port Ministries
Inspired by St. Francis and the Franciscan Charism, the Port Ministries mission is to provide the fundamental needs of the mind, body, and spirit. The organization addresses these needs through a series of programs and services that holistically work together to serve the under-resourced and under-served residents of the local communities (Back of the Yards, Englewood, Gage Park).
No one envisioned the rich network of ministries that would develop when Father Augustin Milon, OFM, founded a one-room soup kitchen in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood on May 26, 1985. In a neighborhood stricken by violence, homelessness, drug abuse, gang activity and abandoned buildings, Port Ministries has listened and responded to the pressing needs of the local community with a Catholic spirit of loving outreach.
Our goal is to put faith-in-action to address the underlining issues that plague and limit the potential of these under-resourced and under-serviced communities and their residents
