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.
