The Salvation Army Helps Make Families Whole.
As long as there's The Salvation Army, there's no such thing as "no place to go."
To keep our clients, staff, and volunteers safe, and in accordance with city and state guidelines, most programs at The Salvation Army DeKalb Corps Community Center are closed until further notice. Modified programs and services may still be available. Our food pantry remains open but as a drive-through service with prepackaged boxes delivered curbside, and clients can receive food once a week (instead of the previous once a month). For the most up-to-date information, please contact us at (815) 756-4308.

Through our community center and social services, we equip families with the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual support they need to foster better, brighter futures.
The Salvation Army meets families wherever they are in life and help them move to a more self-sufficient and productive path.
Head Start & Early Head Start
Head Start and Early Head Start programs provide young children and their families a chance to learn in an educational and creative environment. Programs also meet the needs of teen mothers and homeless families.
The Salvation Army community centers provide after-school programming to give youth and teens a safe place to complete homework, learn new skills and relax with their friends.
Pathway of Hope
Pathway of Hope is a comprehensive case management system that helps families identify barriers to self-sufficiency. Such as unemployment, insecure housing, lack of job skills, lack of childcare, etc. Pathway of Hope also helps address these barriers and connects families with community support organizations, and more.
The Salvation Army food boxes may include shelf-stable pantry items, breads, cereals, meat and other household necessities. The pantry is open the Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - Noon, and Thursday 5 p.m. - 6:45 p.m. Volunteers are needed to help in the food pantry.
