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.

We cannot do all of what is accomplished without you.

>>We need your help to reach our Christmas Gift Goal for 374 local children<<


Adopt A Child for Christmas Gifts

"An opportunity to provide Christmas gifts for local children whose families are facing financial challenges."

​We are currently assisting up to 236 families a week, including 374 children. Families are reaching out to us as they struggle with their finances. Our goal, just as in the past 20+ years, is to ensure some Christmas Gifts for their children. Everything you need to know is explained under the Children’s Christmas tab, or call (847) 395-0309 to talk with Judy  or Marytherese.
