Inspired By Faith, Strengthened By Community

Your Service Makes an Impact

Amate House fellows dedicate themselves to a year of service, community, and faith. They serve with fellow Chicagoans working for justice in their communities. Not only do they impact their own futures, but the futures of thousands of others.
