The Salvation Army is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Our message is based on the Bible, our ministry is motivated by the love of God, and our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ as we meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Every program we offer is rooted in our passion to serve God by serving the vulnerable, the needy, the poor, the hurting, the lost and helpless and the hopeless.
Each month, Harbor Light sponsors an outreach activity for the families of those in our treatment program and for community members. These events include a pig roast and luau, fiesta, Mother's Day brunch, Father's Day picnic, family movie nights, carnivals, puppet theater, sobriety celebrations, and game nights.

Ministry groups provide opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship. The groups plan projects, events, retreats and experiences to improve their communities and promote a closeness to God.
League of Mercy / Community Care Ministry
Loneliness is a serious problem that no medicine can cure. This is evident in hospitals, convalescent homes, long-term care facilities, correctional institutions, veteran's medical centers, and children's homes. The Salvation Army formed the Community Care Ministry (CCM) to help alleviate such suffering by connecting us with those in hospitals, nursing homes, and correctional facilities. Each month, volunteers visit Hines VA and one long-term care facility to provide needed hygiene items, prayer and fellowship. We also visit Stroger Hospital, Jesse Brown Veterans Hospital, Hines Veterans Hospital, and five long-term care facilities at Christmas and Easter.
