Elim Outreach Network

One former board member may have put it best when he said,
“God has given Elim something very special, and we believe we must share it with others in our nation and in our world.”

In response to this call, we have established the Elim Outreach Network which works nationally and internationally to see people with disabilities thriving in their communities.


Elim joins together with Christian schools in our national network to develop school-wide initiatives for meeting the needs of all learners in inclusive school communities.

What does National Outreach look like?

Elim collaborates with fourteen Outreach Network member schools in the Midwestern United States. Our service scope includes onsite and remote educational consultation, school-wide program & process development, resource sharing, professional development and opportunities for school-to-school collaboration. Our National ministry seeks to expand the continuum of educational services for all learners and develop inclusive school communities.

Elim also serves as an approved vendor for Chicago Public Schools’ Federal Grant Programs IDEA and Title I. Title I and IDEA ensure that all children, regardless of race, income, zip code, disability, home language or background have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. Elim’s two IDEA teachers and three Title I teachers serve over 50 students in two Chicago-area Christian schools

What’s Included

Elim collaborates with eight community leaders representing schools and other ministries in seven countries around the world through the Elim Outreach Network. Elim works closely with these leaders to understand personal and cultural issues related to ministry development in their own country context. As Elim grows in its understanding of global disability realities, we explore and pursue community development ideas such as educational and vocational opportunities for people with disabilities. Elim also develops and shares training resources with ministry leaders who are reaching out to their local communities to support, teach and train others.
