To keep our clients, staff, and volunteers safe, and in accordance with city and state guidelines, most programs at The Salvation Army Elgin Corps Community Center are closed until further notice. Modified programs and services may still be available. Fresh Produce Pantry items are pre-boxed and not client choice. We are open on Saturdays from 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM, but only small groups are allowed in the building at a time. We provide home goods items on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM and Thursdays from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM. We have adjusted to pre-bagged instead of the client-choice until further notice. For the most up-to-date information, please contact us at 847-741-2304.

By the end of the 4th grade, African-American, Latino and low-income students are already two years behind grade level.

By the time they reach the 12th grade, the same kids are four years behind.

"The goal-setting class really showed me how to create a plan to succeed and reach my dream."

The Salvation Army's programs help motivate, encourage and empower youth to be the best they can be and to seek out ways to reach their goals.

The Salvation Army empowers youth in our community through: 

Music, Visual and Dramatic Education
The Salvation Army is the largest music educator in the world, with offerings in brass, vocal, guitar, drums and more. It is important to provide additional creative outlets for youth, teens and adults to share their experiences, hopes, dreams and fears. Classes are Tuesdays from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. with dinner at 5:15 p.m.

Camp
Wonderland Camp provides week-long summer camp options for youth, teens and seniors with a different theme each week. We also host day camps during school breaks and the summer.
