How It Began...

All Things Through Christ Outreach Ministries, Inc.

Our Beginnings

The beginnings of ATTCOM took shape the day its founder, Sam Ella McKenzie, answered a call from God to help those who are hungry, unemployed, and homeless. With her own money, as well as small donations she received from the community, Sam Ella started purchasing food to support her mission. She launched the first “Feed the Needy” program with help from her family, friends, and pastor – providing food for nearly 50 local families once a month.  .

Later, Sam Ella renamed the program “All Things Through Christ Outreach Ministres” (ATTCOM). Her perseverance and dedication to bringing hope to those in need soon caught the attention of other organizations, individuals, corporations, and volunteers. These partnerships have enabled the Chicago non-profit agency not only to expand their local coverage and services, but also to provide clothing, school supplies, and toiletries to impoverished children in Switzerland, Africa, and India.
