Outreach: Inner City Chicago

Evangelism is integral to everything Cru® does, and compassionate evangelism meets spiritual and physical needs of the poor through our Compassionate Products™. Christian literature for all-ages is included in most of our products. We train our partner ministries to use these materials to effectively share the gospel.

Boxes of Love®

We provide inner-city churches with boxes containing a meal for six as well as gospel materials, which – together – bring hope to hungry families at Thanksgiving.


Homeless Care Kits

Through Homeless Care Kits, you tangibly demonstrate the love of Christ by sharing the gospel with people in need and providing items to help them survive the difficult winter months.



PowerPacks are an amazing tool to help urban churches reach those in need in their community — backpacks filled with school supplies and given in Christ's name!


Easter Bags

Easter Bags are plain paper bags filled with some of the things inner-city children treasure: candy, fruit, crayons, a toy ... a full-color children's activity book about Jesus, for children with little church background.


Summer Day Camp

Agape Center Summer Day Camp provides a physical and spiritual safe haven for Chicago Public School students from Roseland and surrounding neighborhoods.
