We have a long history of work in the inner city of Chicago. We were founded in 1905 by Moody Bible Church, as a rescue mission. On September 16, 2005, Sunshine celebrated its 100th birthday! In the intervening period, we have served as:

  • A rescue mission in the early 1900s
  • In the 1920s to 1940s, Sunshine served as an interdenominational inner-city ministry known as Sunshine Gospel Mission.
  • In the late 1940s to mid-1970s, Sunshine was as an inner-city men’s youth and music ministry, which became known as “Chicago’s Musical Mission”
  • 1974-2001 as a youth-centered mission within Chicago’s Cabrini Green housing project
  • 2001-Present We continue many of our relationships with friends on the near north side, but have moved to the Woodlawn community of Chicago’s south side, as the Cabrini neighborhood has undergone extensive redevelopment.
  • We operate from a newly renovated facility, which was formerly six storefronts at 500 E. 61st Street.
