Learn More About How We Can Help You

Over 13,000 forgotten veterans, struggling families, and at risk youth face homelessness in Illinois and Iowa

With our continued efforts, The Salvation Army is able to offer countless nights of shelter to these vunerable groups.

Our doors are always open.

Each year, The Salvation Army provides over 10 million nights of lodging to those in need. Our group homes, emergency shelters, and transitional living centers provide housing, food, and overnight lodging for varying amounts of time to destitute families, the homeless, the displaced, and to youth where family care is undesirable or unavailable. Through our holistic approach to serving the whole person, we supplement every shelter service with emotional and spiritual support.

Give the gift of a good night's sleep. You can help.
