Here To Serve.

The Care Center is a ministry of Willow Creek Community Church. We are committed to offering services that help meet immediate needs as well as services that help build toward a more sustainable future for individuals and families in the Chicagoland area.

Our Mission

Fighting poverty and injustice so that lives are transformed and Jesus is known.
By sharing the hope and love of Christ while meeting basic needs and offering long-term solutions, we empower people toward a more stable future.

Our Values


We believe in creating a radically inclusive community where people are treated with dignity and respect regardless of their ethnic, economic, legal, or religious status.


We believe true hope is found in a redemptive relationship with Jesus Christ.


We believe transformation occurs in the hearts of those serving and being served, as God redeems hurting people and broken situations.


We invite you to join us for a hosted tour and Q&A session where you will learn more about the Care Center’s story, our services, and how your organization or church can address the needs in your community. Individuals or groups are welcome for this interactive learning experience. Contact us to schedule a tour, or email
