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 Crystal Lake Corps Community Center are closed until further notice. Modified programs and services may still be available. Our temporary food pantry operates Mondays through Fridays from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m through Labor Day. For the most up-to-date information, please contact us at 815-455-2769.

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.
The Salvation Army provides basic school supplies for children whose parents cannot afford the items necessary to succeed in school. Qualifying families will live in McHenry County and make no more than $48,500 for a family of four. The Salvation Army is accepting donations of new school supplies to distribute to families in need. For more information on how to apply or to make a donation, call 815.455.2769.
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.
