About Emmaus Ministries

Since 1990, Emmaus Ministries has reached out to men in survival prostitution in Chicago. As we have gotten to know the men on the streets and in our Ministry Center, we have been struck by their courage and resilience. We have been blessed to walk with them, to hear their stories, and to help them as we can. We have been humbled as they have allowed us to speak into their lives.

But God’s work in these men does not begin or end with us. We also rejoice to hear what God says through their words and actions—through their very lives.

This video offers a glimpse into the stories of the men we work with: stories of them rebuilding their lives and reclaiming their identities as children of God.



I support Emmaus because I have met some of the men Emmaus serves. I have sat down with them, eaten with them, listened to them, prayed with them. As I have been privileged to get a glimpse of their brokenness I have discovered more of my own, and in that sharing of ourselves, I realize we have shared Christ.

– Paul Horcher, former board member and volunteer
