The Salvation Army meets the needs of adults of all ages.

Donate Now I Need Help

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.

The Salvation Army helps adults in every stage of life address crises and identify pathways to success while providing them with love and hope.

We help adults overcome substance abuse, get out of poverty, and start over. Through programs designed to address the mind, body and soul, we meet the needs of adults of all ages.

"I came to Salvation Army looking for basic help like clothes & food. They went beyond that - offering to always help."

Sometimes life hits you hard and you just need a hand up. The Salvation Army is there to show you the path to hope.

The Salvation Army provides resources and support for adults in our community through: 

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.  

Job Training
The Salvation Army offers job skills training and employment referrals for adults. 

Food Pantry
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. To volunteer, call 815.756.4308, ext. 4311, or click here to apply online.
