Strengthening communities is a hallmark of The Salvation Army — and we do it by being a part of the communities we serve. Our Corps Community Centers in Greater Chicago, northern Illinois and northwestern Indiana are designed to meet the specific needs of the communities in which they are located.
Each community center offers a wide range of programs reaching people of all ages — from children to seniors. We help with leadership, guidance, encouragement, resources and programs that empower members to unite and work together to help resolve old problems and create new opportunities that lead to a safer, more prosperous future.
We offer counseling programs for individuals and families, and minister to body, mind and spirit. Centers serving Hispanic populations offer ESL classes as entry to mainstream success. Performing arts and music instruction provide avenues to explore talent and potential and health and wellness programs, such as Keep it Fit Chicago, tend to the body and mind.
Strengthening one life at a time is how The Salvation Army fulfills its mission to strengthening communities.
