Welcome to Open Arms Mission

Created in 2000, Open Arms is a non-profit serving local families. Over the past 20+ years, we have partnered with local businesses, churches, community organizations, schools and Lake County agencies. With these partnerships, we provide support with weekly food, finances and outreach referrals. Our motto “neighbor helping neighbor” is demonstrated through our community donors,volunteers and partnerships.

“Neighbor helping neighbor” is a phrase that exemplifies how members of our community reach out to help one another. During the past couple of years, so much has changed for our neighbors who were or are now challenged with not enough finances to meet increased costs. Rents, food prices and utilities keep rising. Currently, our biggest challenge is assisting neighbors with help to stay in their rental home. If you have questions on how you can help, please call Marytherese at 847-395-0309.
