Inner City Impact


About Us

Inner City Impact has served the inner city of Chicago since 1972. Committed staff reach kids ages 5 – 18 in some of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods—Humboldt Park, Logan Square, and Cicero.

Through ICI’s core programs, dedicated full-time missionaries and volunteers work with children in Bible studies, one-on-one discipleship, and in a variety of Christ-centered, wholesome and fun activities.

Programs include after school clubs, summer and winter camp adventures, and leadership development and sports leagues engage the kids in wholesome activities – and give us the opportunity to share the gospel.

Our Mission

To present the living Christ, primarily to unchurched inner city children and youth, discipling and integrating them into a local church.

“For over 35 years, Inner City Impact has done an outstanding job of presenting the person of Jesus Christ to young people desperately needing Him. That’s why Moody is delighted to be a ministry partner with ICI.”” – Dr Joseph Stowell, Former President, Moody Bible Institute

“Bill Dillon and Inner City Impact work among some of the most needy people in Chicago. I have personally seen the spiritual fruit of their labor. Young people who were on their way to potentially horrible trouble are now in the Kingdom of God, being honored as outstanding students and walking in God’s Spirit. I cannot commend Inner City Impact more highly, and Bill Dillon, Executive Director, more enthusiastically. All around Chicago, church and community leaders speak highly of his character, devotion to inner city ministry, and faithfulness to the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”” – Dr. Luis Palau, International Evangelist
